Meet Jess




Hi!  I’m Jess and I am the creator of The Hourglass Project.  This is a project near and dear to my heart and one that I hope makes a positive influence not only in my life, but in the lives of others.  As a wife and mother of two young kids my life seems to be full of chaos and activity.  I run a small business and work part time as a mental health counselor in addition to raising the kids and co-managing the household.  I am typically not one to sit still so focusing on the elements highlighted in The Hourglass Project has challenged me to let go of control in certain areas of my life and to become more present and mindful.  This site will be a reflection of my personal journey and I will offer strategies to create more balance and joy, but I would love for you to share your own challenges and triumphs in the comments area of the site as well . Let’s do this together.  Let’s be the change we need to make our lives more fulfilling.

    Jess- I love your story, you are a great writer! Your story could’ve easily been mine, ( just like most of us ) strange health issues, no answers, not feeling understood , going on like this for years … The frustration for me was that I had to finally found another woman who was sick to tell me her story, and that was all I needed to get those toxic bags out of my body ! I don’t understand why it is so hard to believe that so many of us are having a negative reaction to these for an objects😳 Are you a part of any of the Facebook support groups? They have been such a lifesaver for most of us who feel alone .
    How are you feeling now?
    I had my implants removed here in Las Vegas years ago, but still have some lingering symptoms.( also had some lymph nodes removed in Atlanta a few months ago that were infected with silicone) I don’t know if you’re detoxing will ever end for me, but other women have given me hope that I can be 100% healthy again someday 💖
    Much love to you, Bless you for sharing your story! Daryl

      Hi Daryl,

      Thank you so much for your feedback. I am part of two facebook support groups, which was a huge part of my recovery process. In fact, I think I would have done it all wrong if they hadn’t been there. I am doing much better! In fact, so much so that I got involved heavily in the kids school and haven’t had a moment to sit down and write in almost three months! I am finally done with my obligations and sitting down to write today. I pray that you do reach 100% recovery, but every gain is a gain none-the-less! Hugs from afar!!! Sending love and positivity! xoxo Jess
