From a guest appearance on tv's Peppermint Place at age five to a semester as the college mascot, Jessica's favorite activities have always involved educating and entertaining a crowd. Unsure how to pay the rent with these talents, Jessica opted for credentials in anthropology and nutrition and took a job in a hospital psych unit.
It wasn't long before she was back on stage, teaching other professionals how to relate to their patients and better treat eating disorders. Telling stories that click with anyone who eats, Jessica reframes the experience of eating disorders into something we all understand. The most embarrassing things we do with food become data points and practical tools instead of more failed attempts to change. Combining humor, science, and professional experience, Jessica helps us improve one of the key relationships in life - the one we have with food.
Because of her accessibility and easy manner, Jessica's fans may forget that she has an extensive education. It is her background in human behavior (she holds a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from The University of Pennsylvania) combined with her expertise in dysfunctional and disordered eating (she is a Registered Dietitian with a Master's Degree and writes books and articles about eating disorders) that have led to her unique ability to see what others miss.
After treating thousands of patients in the hospital and out, Jessica has adapted and fine-tuned her nutrition counseling into a teachable method that works for patients labeled "difficult," "unwilling," and "non-compliant." She trains dietitians to use her "Universal Precautions" to identify the underlying issues influencing patients' eating. She bases her presentations on the latest research into human brain function, decision-making, motivation and personality, but she slips it into her stories so that listeners can relate.
