Today, I am the Founder and CEO of Talk To Jess, a creative multimedia consultancy where we work as strategic partners to the world's leading brands including Barbie, Dove, Aerie, Warner Bros. and more.
My team and I address tough cultural and social issues head-on with authenticity, empathy and expertise. We help brands and businesses become more culturally fluent and inclusive in their media, marketing, advertising, and workforce.
I’m also a creator at heart and produce content with the goal of helping people feel seen, heard, and understood.

in changing how women and girls are represented in media and culture.
Her understanding of complex issues pertaining to gender stereotypes, gender discrimination, along with the nuanced role that misogyny, racism, and classism
play into how women and girls see themselves and how society views them has
solidified her credibility as a cultural expert and gender equality advocate.
For over 17 years, Jess has been a partner and trusted advisor to the Dove brand globally, helping to bring forward culture-shifting campaigns such as The Campaign for Real Beauty, Dove x. Twitter partnership on #SpeakBeautiful, Dove Reverse Selfie and Sketches.
Additionally, her role as a Self-Esteem Ambassador has contributed to bringing self-esteem education to over 82 million young people globally via The Dove Self-Esteem Project.
Her passion, determination, and commitment to helping women and girls
has made Jess one of our most valuable partners to-date.”

Where it all started. I’ve been a Brand Partner with Dove for over 17 years…
There are few things I love more than storytelling.
I’m a creative a heart, and podcasts are one of my favorite ways to truly connect and learn from people of all ages, careers, and lived experiences.
As a host and producer of personal and branded podcasts, it’s my team’s mission to help create content that brings new and underrepresented stories to mainstream media.
For decades I’ve been working to make social change with the brands I consult for.
Now, I'm ready to share with you some of the REAL behind-the-scenes stories from what I've learned about this work.
The good, the bad, and the personal.
These are the stories that I'm not sharing ANYWHERE else.
One of the most important components of my work - and life - is developing an Actionist® mindset.
An Actionist® is someone who works to make change in their everyday life.
By signing up for my monthly personal notes, I’ll share how to develop the Actionist® mindset and move towards making change in your mind,
career, or community.
