Human to Human

Human to Human

Human to Human was born out of meaningful conversations with best friends about navigating life in your 20’s. When we share our experiences – the good ones and the bad – we are vulnerable enough to connect on a deeper level. It’s in those moments we feel more human. Listen in as Jess cuts through the small talk and tells you exactly how it is. You’ll be sure to get a dose of many Jess epiphanies, dating stories, and therapy realizations.
