Jessica is a leadership consultant who has spent the last 20 years working with people to clarify their most meaningful goals and grow into the leaders they most wish to be (or not!). Her passion has been to help organizations identify and develop talent, stimulate new thinking about what groups can do and how they can work together, and facilitate important conversations. After falling in love with the Hudson Valley, she and her partner Matt seeded the idea garden in 2016, and are working to bring each of their backgrounds together into this new venture. An ever evolving concept, the idea garden is a space in midtown Kingston for community events, collaborations, workshops, and ideas to grow, as well as to share and discuss art. Her best days also include dogs, coffee, crafts, reducing waste, and riding her bike.
