Name: Jessica Phillip
City you live in: Phoenix
A typical day in my life includes… Besides preparing for the opening of The Green Element, I work as an Air Traffic Controller full time and I spend time with my family and my dogs.
I was born… in Arizona
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the smell of the desert when it rains.
I’m listening to…. Sipho, an English R & B singer is my newest obsession, as an avid music lover I love discovering new artists
My family… is the absolute best! My business would not be happening without their help.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… John Williams! I would love to understand how he hears and creates all the music he has created in his lifetime.
One thing I cannot live without… the color Green! I could never be happy without green in my life.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a storm chaser I have been and always will be fascinated by tornados.
I’m inspired by… my parents! My Mom is a creative thinker and my Dad is critical thinker and they inspire me to be my best self in both ways.
The one person who motivates me is… My Niece Sophia, I want her to see that she can do whatever she wants to do in her life as long as she is happy.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… that all dogs have happy loving homes! I would rescue every dog if I could.
The perfect day would be… spent atDisneyland and Laguna Beach with my Family.
My first job was… I had the best job I worked at Video Update and it was glorious!!!
My favorite escape… California! You can get all 4 season and there is no shortage of things to do, especially with music and art.
My life… is filled with laughter and happiness but most importantly trying to do my small part in bringing joy and laughter to others.
I’m currently working on… the opening of the Green Element. We are getting keys and starting construction at the end of this month to open (hopefully) in the early summer.
Always… love what you do!
Never… go outside without sunscreen
Favorite Quote… “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam.” ( I will either find a way, or I will make one)
Biggest Dream… is to be able to spend my retirement helping animal rescues around the world.
My Pet Peeve(s)… the lack of awareness of what people are doing to this planet in the form of deforestation and trash in the oceans as well as the nonchalant attitude of the fixes we have for the damage in the future.
