Hi, I'm Jess (but I go by the name Bella now).
Welcome to my online home! I’m glad you’re here.
Growing up in Michigan, I was given the typical “work hard, play hard” approach to achievement and success. But after feeling miserable living out this approach personally, I promised myself to find an alternative way to live that felt easier, joyful, and fulfilling. I also knew that once I discovered such an approach, I wanted to share what I found with others.
I started exploring these topics through blogging in 2009-2014, and then via The Lively Show podcast beginning in 2014. The podcast journey alone has been immense: First podcast interviews with thought-leaders such as Brené Brown, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Elizabeth Gilbert. Then exploring beyond the mind with The Collective channeled by Annie Franceour, and diving into The Law of Attraction, neurology, and quantum mechanics… And more recently into consciousness and non-duality.
Along the way, I discovered the incredible power of the intuition, and how to translate our inner knowings into what I call our “Inner Voice.” After a decade of working with my own inner voice and helping thousands of clients access their own, the Lively community asked me to start an online school to train and certify them in my approach, and Inner Voice Facilitator Training (IVFT) was born. So far, 174 Inner Voice Facilitators worldwide have completed certification and are running their own Inner Voice Facilitation businesses, or merging the training into various careers and their personal lives.

Lively Community Foundation
The Lively Community Foundation (2018-2022) was designed to uplift the wellness in the world by connecting as many people as possible with transformational tools, education, and community. The Emotional Wellbeing Brigade (EWB) program focused on the transformation beyond trauma by providing 25 grants for individuals to be trained in RTT, a hypnotherapy healing modality. The EWB also connected those ready to release trauma with RTT therapists for 500+ free sessions. In 2022, The LivINg Room was created as a platform to pay certified Inner Voice Facilitators to teach online inner voice classes to the public free of charge. Currently, we are designing a “LivINg Room Library” resource portal, so the public will have access to the 150+ class recordings in March, 2023.

After training to be a classical ballet dancer and then flowing through an illness that led me from nursing school, to psychology, to graphic design, Jess’ voice has guided me through the peaks and valleys of life. Since becoming a Lively Show listener back in 2015, I have followed Jess’ journey with joy and inspiration as her teachings sparked new passions in my life. It is truly a dream come true to step into my role here on Team Lively. It is such a joy to work with such inspiring women, and to give back to a community that has been such a huge part of my own journey!
