Well hello there. I'm Jess. Let's get acquainted, shall we?
My entire life people have told me I'm "an old soul", and although in this go-round on the wheel of life, death, and re-birth I'm 30 years young, I often question whether my old soul has perhaps leaked out a bit into this body catalyzing some pre-mature aging. From migraines, Reynaud's syndrome, and osteopenia with multiple stress fractures, to sciatic pain, reflexive sympathetic dystrophy, and fibromyalgia, this body has been through a lot. But, these are things that have happened to my body; they do not define me.
I am so much more than the chronic pain I live with. I'm a yogi and yoga instructor. I'm the proud human companion of Maddy, who has been my K9 life co-pilot for over 8 years. I'm a recovering overachiever and perfectionist who by day lets my right brain do its thing as a project manager in software implementation, and unleashes my left brain with gardening and a room by room complete DIY redecoration of my house.
