"Jessica is one to watch. But more than that, she’s one to hire -- now! I assumed I would enjoy her workshop, but did not imagine I’d get so much out of it. I have some work to do… and after seeing Jessica in action, I feel inspired to do it. She’s engaging, insightful, and real. Her greatest skill as a storyteller: her ability to listen. My only frustration: I wanted more time. My only question: why are you reading this instead of contacting her? "
