Jessica De la O has been serving youth and young adults since she herself was a young adult. As a collage administrator for 28 years, she guided young adults toward the completion of their college degree. After completing a doctorate in education, she developed and offered a rites of passage program for adolescent girls, then followed guidance from the wisdom of the plants who called her toward a larger dream of service.
Jessica trained in Plant Spirit Medicine and was inducted as a Lay Spiritual Healer in the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing in 2015, and currently offers plant spirit medicine in Carrollton, Georgia. As a long-time community leader with Sacred Fire, she guides and supports young women through their initiation into adulthood, and she also serves as an initiated Firekeeper who holds space at community fires for people to experience the wisdom and healing that comes from sitting by a sacred fire..
