JENNA GESSAY – INTUITIVE WELLNESS, BRANDING AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
I am an Intuitive Wellness Practitioner and my passion is…Loving service.
SILVR: You’re walking down the street and a beautiful stranger stops you and asks you, “What do you do?”
Jenna: In my best moments, I’m a vessel. I help people discover (or remember) what their heart is truly calling them to do, and help them acknowledge and listen to their inner voice.
SILVR: What was the deciding moment that made you to take a leap of faith and start TUNE?
Jenna: For me it was working with kids, our trip to Bali, feeling overwhelming gratitude, where thank you didn’t seem like enough. My gratitude would be shown if I did the work that was knocking on my soul’s door. With the support of my wonderful husband (Dr. Ryan) who is a passionate healer, TUNE in Solana Beach with a fresh, integrative, holistic approach became a dream that we achieved together.
SILVR: What’s the scariest decision you’ve ever made in your professional career? Did it work? If so, why? If not, why not?
Jenna: It worked, leaving biotech, something that was perfect on paper, something that would ‘secure a stable future.’ Being offered the job in SD and declining that opportunity. Then spending every ounce of our savings on a ‘labor-of-love’ boutique practice, and shifting into loving service that allows healing to happen from the inside out. It has been more fulfilling than I could have ever imagined, because I am now living my truth.
SILVR: What was the last project you worked on that truly fed your soul? Or what encounter have you had with a customer that truly fed your soul or validated your work?
Jenna: Everyday…there are miracles feeding my soul every single day.
SILVR: Who was the one person in your professional career that helped or inspired you the most?
Jenna: Children, children have inspired me most.
SILVR: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? An epidemiologist or a veterinarian. And if you could travel back in time and tell that same kid (you) what you do now?
Jenna: That I didn’t need school for what I do. It was much easier than I was taught. I would get to keep my heart open my whole entire life. That I was enough…just being who you are is enough.
SILVR: What do you love the most about what you do?
Jenna: I love learning, I love the growth, I love having my heart expanded. I love the shifts that come from my work.
If I’m a brave vessel, if I do this work, then other people’s lives shift. It’s not because of me. It is through their own divine shift.
SILVR: What’s next?
Jenna: A more vocal approach, a more public approach to allowing ourselves to unfold through a community. It will be an inspiration sharing space around education and the innate creative and deep spirit within each of us. One component of this space will be allowing children in other cultures as well as ours to teach us (adults) some of what we have forgotten.
UP-CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH JENNA GESSAY
SILVR: What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
Jenna: I lied about the money that was associated with candy that I was selling to go to camp when I was 7 for Campfire Girls. Instead of selling it at each door, I left it at each door and lied about it the empty envelope I carried home. My dad made me go to every single house and tell the people who lived there what I had done, asking for either the money or the candy back. I learned early that lying is harder than telling the truth.
SILVR: What is the farthest you have been from home?
Jenna: Physically, Bali. But honestly the farthest I’ve been away from home was when I was doing everything that I thought I “was supposed to” be doing, allowing my fears to run the show.
SILVR: What is your favorite sound?
SILVR: Do you have a special talent or preferred superpower?
Jenna: Trusting my intuition.
SILVR: At what age did you become an adult?
Jenna: 11…. but I find myself more childlike as I get older.
SILVR: When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
Jenna: Read, meditate, yoga, gratitude walks, hike, bake, or love on my husband and little dog.
SILVR: What is your middle name?
SILVR: If you were immortal for a day, what would you do?
Jenna: In my purest form, I am immortal – we are all immortal, but it is important to honor that each day is precious and it is a given gift.
SILVR: Are you in love?
Jenna: Yes, with my husband!!
