about

JTudos2_jacketJessica Tudos (M.Ed, OCT) is an Olympian turned edupreneur, motivational speaker, and author on a mission to empower kids, youth and adults to lead active, healthy and creative lives – in any direction!  More on the motivations behind her work in this manifesto.

As a catalyst who “gets great things done”, Jessica and her collaborators transform ideas into purposeful actions that lead to positive social change in the areas of education & learning, sports & recreation, culture, and sustainability.

With extensive experience teaching, facilitating, and managing local and international initiatives in educational, non-profit, for-profit and governmental settings, Jessica approaches each project with a personalized, hands-on approach that inspires immediate action and lasting impact.

Perhaps her curiosity for learning & doing sprung from the more than 10,000 hours she spent upside-down as a kid, skills that led her to the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics as a member of Canada’s 5th place Olympic gymnastics team – see her floor routine here!

Drawing from her Olympic gymnastics past and extensive global career “making great things happen”, Jessica’s two signature programs – Kika the Upside-Down Girl – Adventures in a Right Side Up World and The FL!P Approach to Achieving Success – Jessica blends organizational pragmatism with creative application to deliver lasting results. Areas of expertise include:

  • JTudos_upside down_websizeProject co-creation, implementation and management
  • Motivational speaking – keynotes, panels and roundtables
  • Experiential workshop design and facilitation
  • Life Coaching for individuals & families
  • Launch Pad retreat creation and facilitation

As an active member of Clean Air Champions, Motivate Canada and The Canadian Olympic Committee, Jessica is passionate about activating lifelong learning in formal and alternative settings.  She holds an M.Ed in Education, OCT certification in intermediate and secondary teaching and a B.Sc. in Recreation.

Collaborators describe Jessica as a highly capable educator, facilitator, speaker and project manager who is equal parts activator, manager, cheerleader, and energizer.  Jessica brings a high level of enthusiasm, commitment and passion to her many diverse projects and initiatives.

For fun, Jessica likes to practice yoga, play tennis, explore local festivals, create sculptures, and dream up new kids stories.
