Name: Jessica Klimisch
The Basics: I grew up in Northfield, MN, and moved to Saint Paul in 2012. I started working for the SPAC’s sister property, Hotel 340, in 2012 and now work for their parent company, Commonwealth Properties, as a marketing and project manager. I will be graduating from Metropolitan State University in June 2018 with a degree in organizational communications and public relations.
Job title/Company: Marketing & Project Manager/Commonwealth Properties, Inc.
Current Diet/Fitness Routine: I’ve always been self-conscious about my body image and have struggled to find my balance with my fitness journey. In the last five years I’ve been focusing a lot on my mind and spirit but find myself neglecting my body. In May of 2017, I started using an app called My Fitness Pal to start tracking my food. Since then I have lost 25 lbs, but I still have a ways to go to reach my overall fitness goal and feel balanced.
Fitness Goals: I want to get up on a wakeboard - just once. I want to run distance and make it all the way without stopping. I want to be like Katniss Everdeen and climb trees and shoot bow and arrows - while leading a revolution, of course.
What inspired me to start on the SPAC journey: I joined SPAC Journey because I want to let go of my fear to incorporate a healthy fitness habit into my lifestyle. I want to let go of always thinking about working out and actually do it. My tomorrow starts today.
