Episode 31: Follow Your Arrow (featuring Jessica Filipek)
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
The journey of a jersey girl turned southern belle.
I've said it so many times now that I probably sound like a broken record, but I have a huge amount of respect for people who have the fortitude to pick up and move to a new place, where they do not know a soul.
After wrapping up graduate school at Lehigh University, my cousin Jessica packed up her stuff and made the move to North Carolina to pursue her career dreams south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Like other interviews I've had with family members, I really enjoyed getting to know Jessica well beyond the surface small talk that often takes over large family gatherings. It's clear that her drive, her passion and her belief in herself will take her far - no matter what geographical location she chooses.
Take a listen and enjoy!
