Courage | Calm | Clarity | Connection

Now more than ever, you need support and skills to care for yourself, so that you can care for others.

Learn simple body, mind, and heart-based tools and strategies to stress less and feel more calm + courageous during this challenging time.

Does Any Of This Sound Familiar?

You’re having trouble sleeping.

You can’t stop worrying about what will happen next. 

You’re glued to your phone, scrolling social media, and checking the news.

You feel irritable, tired, weepy, and amped up (all in one day).

You’re wondering how you can keep this up for the next few months…

But What if you could:

Feel more confident in your ability to cope with this challenge, more compassionate with yourself when you’re suffering, and more calm…even in the midst of this chaos?

What if you had more internal resources to meet the demands of this ongoing challenge?

What if you knew how to practice compassionate badassery?

With the help of this recorded webinar series you’ll learn how to make courageous, compassionate choices to help you cope with the stress of life in the age of COVID-19.

You’ll have the resources you need so that you can feel more in control of your life, no matter what’s happening in the world or in your work as a helping professional. 

"Working with animals, it's not always easy to find someone who "gets" it - what it's like to work with animals, to be a caretaker, trainer, shelter provider, etc. Jessica gets it, and added to that she is just so easy to relate to. The material she provides is easy to understand, and easy to remember. Each week in the Practicing Compassionate Badassery webinar series I learn at LEAST a few new skills that I can both utilize myself, and talk to my team members about. We have the Compassionate Badassery Manifesto hanging in our office, and it reminds us why we are doing this, and that we need to care for ourselves in order to best care for each other. I highly recommend Jessica and her courses - you won't be disappointed!!"

What People Are Saying About The Webinars:



You’re helping animals (or people or the planet). I’m here to help you.

As a compassion fatigue educator, my mission is to help you make an impact for others AND have the time and energy to take care of your own needs, so you can enjoy your life!

I’m obsessed with turning complex ideas into practical tools that you can use right away to address the stress of being a helper. 

I’ve worked with thousands of animal care and welfare professionals through one-on-one coaching, online classes, and my signature year-long training for animal welfare organizations called The Compassion in Balance Program. I want to be in your corner too! You can learn more about me here.
