I'm a Midwestern girl!  I'm also a CEO, fourth generation entrepreneur, podcaster, storyteller and mom of a 6’ 5” teenage boy and 1’ 11’ bulldog named Roscoe. Over the last two decades, I've worked with a portfolio of Fortune 500 companies and public sector organizations on the principles of Transformational Leadership, Self Discovery and the Art of Reinvention. 
I can't wait to share my unique lived-experiences with you!  You'll hear stories and lessons learned while I worked with America's Most Admired Company, the NFL and even a few during the time I built furniture on an Amish Farm in Indiana.  Bottom line...I absolutely LOVE the process of reinvention!  My sole purpose is to delight & inspire; so let's lean into the growing edge together and get after it.

"Fidelity's Women's Leadership Group loved having you Jes. We are working hard every day to keep things moving forward for our customers, but you provided a healthy one-hour end-of-the-workday space for us to fortify ourselves and support one another. All of your memorable topics, from clarity of purpose to male allies, will stick with us for sometime to come. "

"Jes was an inspiration to our Adams Apprentices. Her keynote speech at our Adams Gala hit hard on key points about entrepreneurial leadership around balance and focusing on priorities from well respected current leaders. Our Adams Apprentices are 32 students from across the university that we spend an intense year with to hone their entrepreneurial skills as an individual and leader. Key influencers like Jes are a critical element in helping teach these young students not only how to be a successful entrepreneur, but also how to lead themselves personally."

"Thank you so much for being with us Sunday. Your session was one of my favorites of the entire 5 days - even if it made me feel the most vulnerable. ;) Being a person of faith, I know without a doubt, this crucible moment is shaping me AND it is an uncomfortable place to be. Thank you for the wisdom and compassion you shared with me and that you bring to the world through your gifts."

Ruby G.
StartingBloc Leadership Summit

"Your session made me feel close to home and a sense of comfort, if you could believe that. I was completely plugged in because my brother and I have had many conversations about crucible moments growing up together in an effort to understand what has shaped our growth. I wish the conversation could have continued the rest of the day. Thank you again!"
