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.
