The founder

Hi, my name is Jess and I am the founder of LiboRisk.

Inspired by my grandmother’s adventures, I embarked on my first solo-backpacking trip to Thailand in 2016 and have been traveling ever since. 

I served 8 years as a an active duty photojournalist and marketing director in the Marine Corps.

Traveling as a troop is not easy and we have to endure many restraints and prerequisites in order to travel. I wanted to ease that process by fostering a community that educates and inspires members to see every corner of the world. 

I built a school bus into a tiny home so I could live as frugally and nomadically as possible. I embody a life of freedom, curiosity and risk, so I can ultimately empower other veterans to take charge of their life and experience life beyond the military. 

My time, focus and money is is on LiboRisk. This is my life’s testimony – to help others tap into the unknown, grow as individuals and leave a better footprint. 

I am a LiboRisk.
