Jessie Artigue was born to be a big-sister.
Her career started at age seven when Joey came along, and it was then that she realized she could not have been created for anything else.
After noting that little brothers don’t respond well to being dolled up and paraded around the neighborhood, she began her quest to find sibling-like gal-pals that would end up sticking around for life.
In grade school, she babysat everything from cats to cousins to neighborhood kids, and finally began formal leadership training at age 12.
(Enrolling because it was the only way they'd let her teach sunday school. Ended up being perfect for continuing her sisterly quest!)
By the time she began college, Jessie had mentored dozens of girls through various community, church & school related programs -- A few from the younger set are still her dearest friends to this very day.
As Jessie continues to build her reach and vision, she loves knowing that the desire to cheer on a tribe of little sisters is inspired by her own mentors who generously invest love & guidance into her ever-learning self.
The chance to pass that gift along to her Pepper Girls has been one of the brightest spots of her entire life, and she feels so blessed to embrace it as a part of her diverse career.
