Jessica Byrd- Founder & Executive Director

When Jessica became a new mommy she was bombarded with tons of decisions to make, as most moms; should I work, should I do daycare, should I breastfeed, the list goes on. Despite having a very strong support group in her family, she noticed that amongst her peers, motherhood was like a secret society. A society of mothers who appeared to have it all figured out, but the reality was we all need help, and more importantly we all need each other. Jessica noticed that mothers lacked a sense of community and she wanted to solve that problem. What started as a post on Facebook, as "moms club" has now grown to over sixty mothers in a member oriented organization named CHICmom. 

As a career mom, Jessica has always given her personal and career growth just as much attention as she's given being a mommy and wife. She has strong aspirations in following the career path that God has chosen for her, and stronger aspirations in modeling to her children a mother that confidently walked in her destiny. As a mother of a three and four-year old, life can be very demanding, but she admits to finding strength in CHICmom and strongly believes it was her God-given purpose. Additionally, she knows first hand that being a mother doesn't stop you from growing, in fact you discover a new sense of self discovery. Jessica is deeply rooted in her family and is very aware that home is always her first ministry.
