University of Maryland Alumni Association
During a time filled with angst and uncertainty, we have been pushed out of our comfort zones and forced to re-examine what really matters to us. This is an opportunity to be intentional in finding a path forward that aptly aligns with what brings joy and meaning to our lives. No matter what stage you find yourself in your career, your purpose serves as a north star for your leadership journey. Join Jessika Portney '08 for an interactive workshop to take the first step towards Connecting (or re-connecting!) with Your Why.
This webinar is brought to you in partnership with the Coaches Corner Program, that aims to connect Terps with access to top-level Terp coaches interested in helping you start, advance or pivot your career. 
Passionate about empowering women, Jessika Portney '08 is an executive & leadership coach and founder of Journey On. Jessika has worked in the field of leadership development for over a decade, supporting leaders of all backgrounds and tenures. In addition to her work with private clients, Jessika coaches and facilitates leadership development training programs for non-profit organizations and government agencies. Her approach to leadership has been informed by the cross-cultural experiences she's sought out: pursuing a graduate degree and teaching English in Rome, facilitating Fulbright fellowships for mid-career leaders from 90 different countries, and implementing USAID projects for Egyptian women pursuing a STEM education. Clients value Jessika's deep curiosity about the human experience and ability to create a warm environment for them to be vulnerable and dig deep. She became a coach to honor these gifts and create space for those who want to do similar transformational work. Jessika finds true joy in partnering with clients to embrace their superpowers and manifest their potential.
