Jess Pingrey is a proud freelance writer, mom, ping pong enthusiast, and self- described "cat lady." As a child, she devoured all 22 volumes of my World Book of Encyclopedia set and the Doctor's Book of Home Remedies. She graduated to an obsession with Microsoft Encarta once computers became household commodities. Her unquenchable thirst for learning is the cornerstone of both her business & personal philosophy — lifelong education and asking "why?" are the keys to the Rolls Royce of self-growth.
