The cool girl’s guide to living well
Welcome to JessAnnKirby.com, an online community fostering connection and confidence through honest story-telling and authentic conversation. We believe in living stylishly and unapologetically, that women can be as passionate about the finer things as they are about changing the world, and that staying informed leads us to feeling empowered in all aspects of our lives.
Born and raised in the coastal New England town of Newport, RI, Jessica Ann Kirby grew up with a love for the ocean and the outdoors. After studying journalism and women’s studies in college, she worked in HR consulting for 5 years, living in L.A. and N.Y.C. Struggling with a lack of passion and purpose, Jess and her partner Craig decided to leave their 9-5 jobs and move back to Newport in late 2013, and JessAnnKirby.com was born. Jess has been featured by Refinery29, Apartment Therapy, Lauren Conrad, The Everygirl and more.
Jess and Craig split their time between Rhode Island and Vermont with their daughter and three rescue pets, Fuji, Pepper and Hunter.
