"Jesse is a wonderful trainer. She used inclusive language and provided information from diverse sources. She is clearly a very knowledgeable trainer, and also able to present that knowledge in a way that's digestible and engaging! She shows respect to all the learners, and fostered an environment of community, vulnerability, and deep learning and expression."

- Class Attendee

"Wow.. where do I start?! Jesse was a fantastic teacher. She kept me engaged the whole 4 days, she was a wealth of knowledge. I can't speak higher of Jesse. I feel absolutely prepared to hit the ground running with my new business. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't wait to take more trainings offered by MotherTree and Jesse, because I will DEFINITELY be back for more."

- Class Attendee

"This was one of the most incredible 4 days of my life. Jesse created an amazing experience here, opening her home, kitchen, and heart to us and teaching us from the depths of her 30 years of experience. I was already certified as a doula through a separate organization and I still learned SO MUCH. I feel emotional about leaving here today and I hope I get to come back and take another class from Jesse someday. I don't even mind traveling 6 hours again to do it!"

- Class Attendee

Jesse's warmth, wisdom and extensive knowledge made her an amazing trainer. I so appreciate her willingness to share personal stories and really engage with each of us in the class. Even in the ZOOM format, she made us laugh, move, think, process and dream.
