Jess joined Creative Wellness Strategies in January of 2015 after a chance conversation at Thanksgiving with Minden. After hearing Minden’s passion for helping others, and her ultimate goals for Creative Wellness, Jess knew her background in technology, administration, and employee supervision could be an asset to the Creative Wellness team. Luckily for her, Minden felt the same way, and as they say, the rest is history.
For 13 years Jess worked for a lower Manhattan consulting firm and used her skills to help it grow from 30 people in one office to almost 100 in three separate locations in three states when she left. Over the course of her career, she was responsible for supervising administration, staff business process development, budgeting, database installation and maintenance and anything technology related. Many have said Jess has an amazing “Geek-to-English” translator. One of her main talents is using technology to help solve business problems and increase efficiency. At Creative Wellness, this means Jess is able to set up our systems, maintain our infrastructure and handle day-to-day administrative duties thus allowing our therapists to focus their attention, where it belongs, on the care and treatment of our guests.
Personally, Jess has undergone her own transformation from overworked, obese and out of shape to someone who’s passionate about fitness. Since 2015, she has volunteered for the New York City Parks Department, ShapeUp New York program as a certified group fitness instructor and helps many on their own fitness and wellness path.
Jess lives in New York City, New York with her husband. She is passionate about travel and is always planning her next adventure. When not traveling, she can be found reading, working out, at yoga, researching fitness routines, or spending time hiking outside.
