At the desk Jesenia is writing in a notebook, a yellow Indigenous Print coffee mug next to her and a laptop and mouse are on the desk as well. The laptop has a sticker that reads “Y’all means All”. There is a palm plant next to the desk and a city skyline visible through the window. It is early afternoon. Jesenia is an indigenous woman with a red faux hawk in a twist, wearing pink glasses, gold medallion earrings and pink lipstick with a cream colored blouse.

I can’t speak highly enough about Jesenia, the resume and LinkedIn optimization coaching I received was great! Their guidance supercharged my LinkedIn networking, I’ve witnessed a surge in job application views and have forged some industry connections. Their coaching has been a game-changer, propelling me closer to my career aspirations. ~ BarterUp
Jesenia has the rare ability to make things happen, either through her direct efforts or through empowering others to take action. Through her contributions to OneFreeCommunity I have had opportunities to practice my unique skills, and grow my business. Jesenia’s honest and kind demeanor has made her incredibly easy to work with even when energies run low. I look forward to working with her more in the future. ~ Yadir
Jesenia offered me encouragement and actionable resources when I lost my job and was in need of support, and that made all the difference to my mindset. ~ Carrie

Jesenia has a strong pulse on the world and on how to organize communities, the key part of surviving in the world. This is incredibly important when it comes to art. Combined with her knowledge of story craft, Jesenia is a strong story and art consultant, who is able to put clients’ work in context and improve flow, character, and plot strength. My story was improved by her work. She was able to understand my vision and image without inserting her own, but also her deep understanding of people, history, and the landscape of the world allowed her to enrich my vision with an even broader context. She improved my story flow by quickly grasping the plot, characters, and how they worked together. She spent a deep but efficient time understanding these characters and what they need. I recommend Jesenia as a story editor to anyone who has something to say. ~ Ziyat
Skilled community builder and organizer. A natural at creating welcoming environments, building trust, assessing the passions of individuals, and calling hearts closer together to realize justice. I’m blessed to have witnessed Jesenia’s genius at work. They conspire toward new structures, with vulnerability and grit. A fighter who brings out the fight in me. ~ AhShah
Jesenia is great at coming up with options for the challenges I was facing around finding work. She showed that she was always at the ready to provide options and modify them around the barriers that I face from disability. I found myself having much more hope for getting work that aligns with what I enjoy. Although I have not found work yet I came out of my appointment a lot more motivated to get more clear on what I want and with more of a map on how to get there. I have been independently pursuing that since. ~ A.W.
