In today’s show, Eric is joined by Jessica Ovadia! Jessica, who has a Bachelor of Science in communication from New York University and a Master of Public Health from Emory University, is a healthcare communicator and a problem solver with a decade of experience helping clients articulate their message through engaged interactions, artful language choice, and thoughtful strategy. Her love of healthcare and deep passion for effective clear communication naturally led to the foundation of her consulting firm – Jessica Ovadia: Healthcare Messaging! Having grown up with parents as physicians and being a parent herself, you’ll hear about Jessica’s struggles with the growing demands of life.  Then, you’ll also hear about simplifying complexities, motivation and burnout, creating your own structure, and overcoming tendencies to overcomplicate the way we communicate.  Finally, you’ll hear discussions on the importance of clarifications and knowing the audience, self-esteem when owning your own business, what communicating the ADHD experience can look like, and more!  Learn more about Jessica at her website jessicaovadia.com!
