Meet The Team
After receiving her degree in business and environmental studies from Antioch University, Jessica wasted no time putting it to use. In 2014 at the height of the drought, she Co-founded Ecolawn, a Santa Barbara based landscaping company. Her favorite aspect of the business was selecting the team and watching them thrive.
Her unique skill for relationship building led her to the Helena Group, a global problem solving organization. As the VP of Membership, she interviewed interdisciplinary and intergenerational world leaders and facilitated meetings that led to actionable initiatives. After 2 years creating powerful connections and learning the art of the intro, she had a vast roster of valuable individuals under her belt. People began asking her for introductions when filling positions in their companies and that is when Outliers Recruiting was born.
