Jessica Larche, a New Orleans native, struggled with obesity issues her entire life. In her mid 20s, the 5’3 news reporter hit her highest weight of 267 pounds. In the summer of 2012, a scary high blood pressure diagnosis made her realize that her life was at stake and she had the power to make a lifestyle change to save it.
Jessica says health and fitness is a lifelong journey, and the best motivation is found in the courage to love yourself to healthy. Jessica’s 100 pound weight loss was recently featured on Woman’s Day Magazine.
Jessica Larche, who is also an Emmy Award-Winning Broadcaster and Healthy Living Champion, kicked off our first Courage Speaks Series last month. Courage Speaks is a part of our new virtual masterclass made available through Courage University, our new educational platform. The goal of Courage Speaks is to expose our audience to women who excel in breaking down barriers and societal norms in any facet of life.
