Jessica has spent the last decade learning a variety of earth, life, and healing skills to help define for herself what it meant to be human and lead a healthy, wholesome life. Along this exploration, she discovered the importance of creating strong communities and connection to the earth that sustains us. A Bachelor of Science in Behavior and Health and a focus in birth, breath and bodywork has come together to create Interwoven Care, and soon a community based home of healing we are calling, The Tapestry.  Jesse has been showing up for women and families in her capacity as a full spectrum doula and is committed to being part of the wave of change needed to create healthy sustainable communities. Her personal journey into motherhood and the perinatal mood complications that colored her entry, further exposed and personalized the gaps in care experienced by so many women. Jesse is committed to creating an ecosystem of support for women, their families, the professionals who support them and the communities they are intimately apart of.  We heal and grow together. Let’s make spaces for that.
