Why did you start Fresh Jess?
I started Fresh Jess in 2008 while I was the events director at the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. There, I produced hundreds of events and programs for the Seattle business community, and was exposed to even hundreds more. I created this as a means for sharing all of these great events with my friends, colleagues and people who might be interested in them. It's spiraled into so much more since then, and it's my passion to bring readers along for the ride that is my life as a go-getter in the Pacific Northwest.
