I’m Jessi, the creative force behind The Coffee Mom. When I decided to embark on this blogging adventure, I had nothing more than hope and a dream. Little did I know that with a lot of hard work and an endless supply of caffeine, it would take me on a whirlwind ride that has transformed my life for the better.
Who is “The Coffee Mom”?
Before diving into the blogging world, I was a paralegal pursuing my Master’s in Legal Studies. However, life had its plans in store for me. During my pregnancy with my youngest, I found myself unexpectedly let go from my job. Undeterred, I pushed forward, determined to complete my graduate degree. Picture this: I was furiously typing away, working on what felt like a dissertation while in the throes of labor. And in that incredible moment, my son came into this world, and I also completed my degree.
Once my little one grew a bit older, I was eager to return to the paralegal field. Armed with my fresh Master’s Degree, a few years of experience, and an optimistic outlook, I was convinced that landing a job would be a breeze. But reality hit me hard.
To my surprise, having an MS actually worked against me in my field. I faced discouraging comments like “over-educated” and “too expensive to hire.” Yes, it knocked me down for a moment, but I knew I had to forge a new path. That’s when The Coffee Mom was born.
Little did I know that this humble blog would blossom into a thriving business. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to collaborate with amazing brands, embark on unforgettable travels, and, most importantly, spend precious time with my family.
