About Jessica

I'm an MBA graduate from UCLA Anderson with 10+ years of Communications experience spanning PR, social media and brand strategy. I co-founded Furthermore with my best friend turned husband, a family law attorney experienced in handling divorce, prenuptial agreements, mediation and complex family law litigation. Together, we conceived the concept of an online resource for relationship exploration during our own engagement journey, when we discovered there are thousands of resources for planning a fairytale wedding, but not much to prepare for a fulfilling and sustainable lifelong partnership.

Our soon-to-be-launched Furthermore Talks (TM) framework provides the inspiration, thought-starters and guiding questions to facilitate the conversations that are vital to a meaningful and sustainable relationship.

We recently completed a pre-beta test of the curriculum content with 15 couples and received some great feedback.

My immediate priority is developing the UX for the web-based MVP so we can start testing and iterating. I'd like to partner with someone who has substantial UX experience either to consult or take on an equity role in exchange for helping develop the platform.
