Fresh Friends: Jessica Piha & JVP Media

I'm reviving my Fresh Friends series, highlighting some of the best and brightest talents that I've encountered here in Seattle and beyond. In a few brief questions, you'll find out a little more about what makes these fabulous people tick - what lights the fire that inspires them to pursue their passions.

Next up, meet Jessica Piha, who recently launched JVP Media. Taking the leap into starting your own business is one of the scariest but most rewarding things, and it's no surprise this go-getter made it look easy.

What do you do? 

I recently launched my own PR business, JVP Media! It’s been my lifelong dream to run my own business. I come from a long line of small business owners and I hope to achieve the great success that my father and grandfather have had.

Who inspires you, and why?

My family, boyfriend and strong, independent women who help other women inspire me.

Where can we usually find you? is my website and I’m currently accepting clients! Also, I’ve found a nice little niche with twitter, @jvpmedia. Physically, I’m a homebody believe it or not and nothing gives me greater pleasure than cooking a great dinner for friends or family.
