This week’s guest not only has a powerful story but sheds some light on the pandemic that is COVID-19 & how our essential works can stay safe.

For Dr. Jessica Evans, 2015 was a pivotal year. She finished her residency and was actively studying for boards. She had trouble getting pregnant, found out her husband cheated on her, and had several deaths in the family. As if that isn’t enough both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer and mom almost died from chemo.

She only worked & slept. After she and her husband separated, she did all she could to find balance again but staying busy with work wasn’t enough. She started counseling and decided she needed something to look forward to.

She created “The Year of the Bucket List.” She added 12 things to her bucket list, some big some small, but it was just what she needed to pull herself out of her funk. She is now happily re-married and focused on helping others.

By profession, Dr. Jessica Evans is an Emergency Medicine Doctor. She breaks down what COVID-19 is and why it’s so dangerous.

She also provides her advice on how essential workers can stay healthy.

  1. Wash your hands – virus can live on surfaces up to 72 hours
  2. Don’t touch your face
  3. Social distance – broomstick length between people

We are so very thankful that Dr. Jessica Evans and all of the other essential works are putting themselves at risk every day to help keep us safe and healthy.
