I’m super excited to have the opportunity to be on this wild adventure with all of you! My name is Jessica Bruzzese and I am a District Manager in the Vancouver area as well as a franchisee in Mission, BC. I grew up in Abbotsford, BC and went to school at the University of the Fraser Valley where I started in 2012. One day I was late to class and saw a clipboard going around and so without reading it (sound familiar?) I wrote my name and phone number down. The idea of running my own business over the summer greatly intrigued me and I knew I didn’t want to spend another summer as a waitress/bartender so I decided to take the challenge. In my first year I definitely had my struggles and made mistakes, however I discovered that I enjoyed running a business and wanted the opportunity to hone in on the skills that I had picked up. Every year thereafter I’ve loved it so much I’ve kept coming back. Last year I was offered the opportunity to come back as a franchisee and also work as a District Manager due to the fact that throughout my time with SWP I have always really enjoyed helping others.
When I’m not working like crazy, my favorite thing to do is travel (I’m writing this from Thailand) and one of my biggest bucket list items is to travel to every country in the world. I’m excited to work with all of you this year and have the opportunity to travel with you to Mexico!
