The Inspiration Behind the Work
When Jessika was a young girl, she was inspired and encouraged by countless people in her life. Her mother, a single mother of three, worked hard to provide for the family, but despite difficult circumstances, a passion for education and a better life motivated Jessika to seize every opportunity that life had to offer. She was able to leverage her strengths in order to achieve her life’s goals. Most importantly, she learned two important lessons. One, education is the key to success, and two, use your own gifts and talents to help others achieve, as well.
As an educator and licensed educational psychologist, her career has been built upon these two principles – educating and helping others achieve. As a wife and mother of four, she knows all too well the challenges that come with trying to do what is in the best interest of your children and family in order to succeed, and this is why she started Stronger Minds, Stronger Youth, a go-to resource for parent education.
