Originally from Pittsburgh PA, in the United States, Jess moved to the state of Utah in 2014 and fell in love with the stunning mountains and deserts, National Parks, a culture of healthy living, the arts, music, and many more things that Utah has to offer. Jess states, “I love camping, hiking, and rock climbing! I also love introducing the outdoors to others as a place of adventure and more importantly, a place of healing. There is something very motivating and therapeutic about being connected to nature.” Jess states, “There is such a strength and power of working with young adults in new and novel environments. I love to nurture them through exploring new places, new friendships, and living life to the fullest!”
As a clinically informed life coach, Jess has experience working in numerous treatment facilities. Her training and specialties are coaching clients who struggle with learning disabilities, social anxiety, non-verbal learning disorder, substance abuse issues, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, and other challenges of neurodiversity.
