I feel so lucky to have been able to learn from, work with her and continue to take classes from her or attend workshops whenever possible. If you find yourself wondering if you should take the leap to seek any sort of training, retreat or class by Jessica and her Direct Path Institute……DO IT!

[Jess] carries a source of knowledge and insight about the practice that is a beautiful blend of her extensive knowledge, discipline, & most importantly love with a direct focus on healing oneself.
