Her byline has appeared in publications such as Discover Magazine, Up! Magazine, Details, The Huffington Post, Business Insider, The Daily Meal, AOL Travel and more.
The content itself was great and really reached far into new materials I’ve never read. Jessica was also fantastic about responding to posts and emails.
In addition to great class content, Jessie provided thoughtful, helpful and professional feedback delivered in a respectful manner. The class was exactly the push I needed! Look forward to taking another class with Jessie this fall.
Jessie was great. She was responsive to the students’ needs and questions. I found her comments useful. Her care for the students came across in her advice and feedbacks. She helped me put together a reasonably good blog site (which I hope to make into a great site during the next stage of her workshop).
I just wanted to thank you for all the great, thoughtful, constructive advice and hard work that went into each and every one of your lessons and discussions! I learned so so so much and had a blast doing it! I saved all of the lessons and I will be slowly finishing my business plan and starting a photography class next month which I really need.
I am so glad the class was as fast-paced and jam packed with the readings and information as it was. I really thrive that way. It helped kick my butt into high gear and I am very happily blogging away! I could not be as far along as I am without your help 🙂
Jessica is lovely, very encouraging, with specific suggestions to improve your work. The course content was very impressive – rather a lot in comparison to other courses.
Jessie is very well informed about her craft and eager to share it with others. I appreciated her prompt response to all questions.
