Meet Our Guest Speaker:
Jessie Funk


Jessie Funk 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 M.A. in Theater- emphasizing in how to use the arts as a healing modality for teenagers. Jessie is a former leadership facilitator for Franklin Covey and has also been a professional youth speaker for fourteen years, speaking for high schools and leadership conferences all over the country. She is a 6-time published author and her passion to help 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. She is earning her license as a clinical social worker and focusing on therapeutic leadership training practices for her dissertation.
