Welcome to Health Interrupted, we’re your hosts Gina Lombardi and Laura Kaeppeler. We’re ecstatic to bring you today’s episode with Stunt Girl, Ninja Warrior and Modern Day Wonder Woman - that’s right, she is a superstar in the blockbuster films Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984. Jessie is KNOWN for smashing stereotypes, and defying the impossible. She routinely ranks among the top MEN on the strength-based obstacles of Ninja Warrior and is the first woman to clear multiple courses in America, Japan, and Germany. She attributes much of her success on the seemingly impossible obstacles to her study of Engineering and her decade long career in stunts. Awarded the Action Icon Award for “Stuntwoman of the Year, her credits include: Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Transformers, Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and Leverage. She was an elite pole vaulter, a high level gymnast, and trained in martial arts, high falls, wipeouts, skydiving, motorcycles, stunt driving, fire, wirework, and trapeze. She is most proud of her ability to push beyond her limits, and transform setbacks into opportunities. 001:18 Our Sponsor for today’s episode is On & On Frankincense Hand and Body Wash Go to and click on the Sponsor page to get to On & On.
