NLPulse Presents Jessie Funk!
Northern Lights Pulse is bringing speaker Jessie Funk to Hillsboro on Sunday, March 20, 2022!
Jessie Funk has been teaching and mentoring students for over a decade. She holds a leadership certification from the University of Notre Dame, is a certified life coach, holds a B.S. Degree in Psychology, as well as a Masters in social work. Jessie is a former leadership facilitator for Franklin Covey and has also been a professional youth speaker for 18 years, speaking to over one million teens in high schools and leadership conferences all over the country. She is a 6-time published author. Her passion for helping teens led her to start an international non-profit organization called “Ivy Girl Academy,” a confidence and leadership training program for teen ladies. As a professional vocalist, she has released five solo albums, has toured 36 states with the Broadway musical “Footloose,” has also been hired for hundreds of recording sessions as a studio vocalist, including songs heard on TV’s “America’s Got Talent,” ESPN and “The Biggest Loser.” Jessie has walked away from three record deals unwilling to sell her soul for fame. She chooses to use her voice to lift and inspire in positive ways. She also just began a life-long dream of pursuing a doctorate degree- focusing her dissertation on resilience and critical thinking skills. Jessie is a mother to two teenagers and knows firsthand how complex and wonderful the raising of kids can be! Jessie takes a research-based approach to teach the importance of making good choices. She gives students four proven tools that can take their lives from average to extraordinary. She does all this while sharing personal, hilarious stories and dynamic pop music.
