Jessie Horness, Book Reviewer

If describing oneself as a logophile in a book review biography is trite, than Jessie Horness is trite. She has a couple past lives inside this one, including as a hostel-hopping vagabond, yoga ex-pat, and classically trained actor. Currently, you’ll find her in Traverse City, Michigan, where she is working on her masters in clinical mental health counseling.

Horness is a long-time Ashtanga yoga practitioner, non-evangelical vegan, and is passionate about community cultivation, healing justice, freshwater beaches, and non-dairy milkshakes. Formative reads (not in order of life cycle stage) include Emergent Strategy, The Drifters, Infinite Jest, and All About Love.
