Just like counselors need their own counselors outside of their practices, leaders need their own leaders outside of their organizations. This is because great leadership is what you get when you combine an evolving perspective and subject-matter expertise.
Jessie began her career in tech where she specialized in account management, program and brand development, and team growth and retention. Through those roles and the experience of growing with a company from 36 to 225+ employees, Jessie recognized her passions for building client relationships, creating scalable systems, and spearheading innovations to drive long-term goals. Jessie later transitioned into nonprofit work as a communications consultant and realized her desire to contribute to the social sector full time. She has more than 10 years of experience working with new and growing organizations to enhance their ideas and expand their impact through internal and external communication strategy. She joined Matterlab to build and lead the team of partnership managers and to contribute senior-level communications coaching and support across partners. She received her undergraduate degrees from St. Edward’s University in communications and journalism and made Austin her permanent home after graduation. A believer in building connection through story, Jessie has written features for several publications and, more recently, writes about her experience in motherhood.
