Host and Creator

As an auto-immune disease fighter, Jessica's motherhood journey is postponed. 

While she navigates her health journey, she has decided to learn all about motherhood before she actually is a mother. As a Mama in Training herself, she decided to take that idea and support other Mamas in Training on their journey in and through motherhood. Listen in and learn other all about how to best prepare for pregnancy, postpartum and beyond.

Living in NYC and originally from MA, Jessica is always looking for ways to gather people together, connect and create. She is an American TV/Film and Theatre actor and has been with her husband for 13 years. 

When she's not hosting the podcast or acting, you can probably find her at the gym or at a local coffee shop. She has found her passion in serving others and storytelling.
