She has been a proactive community volunteer for the past 8 years as a mentor to high risk youth and as an advocate for holistic services to these vulnerable members of the broader Oahu community. Jessica's research and diverse nursing background with an extensive focus on pediatric trauma has exposed her to the harsh realities of understanding the comprehensive needs of children who experience trauma and the child's need for holistic services and a comprehensive approach to healing, wellness and restoration. She is the President of Ho 'ōla Nā Pua (New Life for our Children), an organization committed to the restoration of the lives of underage girls rescued from human trafficking. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
