Jessica is a digital producer, writer and natural living hobbyist.
As a young girl she viewed her parents’ health-consciousness with disdain and skepticism, but had little control over all the home-cooked meals and vitamin supplements. As a teen she seized her independence, fast food, copious amounts of sugar, salt and sat on her butt.
After years of inconvenient but ignored symptoms, her doctor said she may be suffering from a common endocrine disorder. Unless she dropped weight or resumed taking hormone medications, its effects could threaten her personal health later and her fertility now.
Those “personal health” risks included cancer.
Determined to keep her options open, Jessica decided to take her health back. Through drastic diet changes, light exercise and stress management, the 20-something dropped 25 lbs. in one year and has kept it off since 2014.
The looming diagnosis disappeared. The symptoms dissolved too and her body learned again how to self-regulate its hormones.
Now she shares what she has learned while further exploring health, the mind and the meaning of it all.
Jessica is an author of several self-published books, including a novel and guided dream journal. Previously, she hosted a video blog on dreams and sleep. On occasion she lends her voice to creative teams for use in video games and web radio.
Currently, Jessica lives in northern New Jersey where she daubs sage on everything and plies her co-workers with healthy snacks.
