Jessica Zaneis

Jes spent 15 years in professional sales, consulting mostly in the healthcare/medical device arena calling on everyone from Indian Health to our Military. Her experience caused her to later volunteer with a group of doctors at the Mwerini School for the blind and albino in Tanzania. Many of them later climbed Kilimanjaro with her. That life altering experience started her exit from the corporate world and her new journey began by chronicling the stories from her experiences on the blog Chronic Climber Chick.

On her new journey she educated herself through advocacy work within multiple communities which for her connected the progress of modern medicine to the wisdom of preventative and holistic care and helped in the creation of her body care line

The project has slowly grown into a larger footprint on a community and global level as she added her fashion line . Continuing her advocacy work and gathering research about the ills of the textile industry along with a passion for history, our country and our military gave her the inspiration for the line and laid the foundation for the future of this mission.

If you mention Helping Hands for Freedom when you order from either site, Jes will donate 25% of the profits to us. If you are a Veteran and want to donate your uniform to be transformed into a beautiful Messenger Bag please contact Jes at the email address on her sites. You can purchase it back for yourself or as a gift, or allow her to sell it to anyone who would love to carry it on their shoulder.
