Welcome to Jess & The Rest.

I’m on a mission to create a balanced & beautiful life — and inspire you to do the same!

My goal is to help you optimize your health, optimize your business, and optimize your life! You deserve to be the best version of yourself, and as I share my journey to becoming my best self, I hope you’ll find inspiration to start on your own path to a fulfilled life. Here, you’ll find posts on a variety of topics, including health and wellness, marketing & business advice, general lifestyle posts, personal adventures, and so much more!

I started blogging in 2013 and have loved sharing my life, thoughts, and ideas with the world. This blog has evolved quite a bit over the last few years (including 3 re-brands), which is why I am so excited about this next chapter of my blog!

Up until now, this blog was known as “Anchored in CLE” / “Jessica Gets Fit” and most recently, “Healthy is Happy”. With Jess & The Rest, I wanted to give this space a refresh — a blank canvas if you will… not associated with any one location or topic. I wanted a space that I could love & grow into, without labels or limitations on my topics. So this is not a “niche” blog by any means, but that is what works best for me. I am so grateful to have you here and encourage you to connect with me on social media or simply contact me!



The girl behind the blog:

My name is Jessica (or Jess), if that wasn’t obvious ;). I live in the Raleigh, North Carolina area with my boyfriend, our 3 cats, and our puppy! We moved here in April 2015 from Cleveland, Ohio. By day, I am an Inbound Marketing Specialist at Coalmarch Productions – a web design and digital marketing agency in Raleigh, NC.
