Jessica Rasdall is a Motivational Speaker and Coach. She partners with creatives to craft stories and presentations that connect with their audience and stand out in a crowded market. Jessica has shared her story of turning her “mess into a message” for nearly ten years and has been featured on major international media outlets such as ABC’s 20/20, Katie Couric, The Guardian, MTV and much more.

When Jessica was a freshman in college, she made a life-altering decision that resulted in the death of her best friend.
