Jessica Purdy’s desire for a more inclusive and accepting society led her to become an Activist, Public Speaker, and Founder of FIC Human Resource Partners, LLC.
Her identity as a panromantic, asexual, transwoman is central to her life and work. She is, as they say, Out and Proud. But rather than ‘coming out’, she brings people into her confidence, her truth, and her life. It’s a combination of her personal experiences and mindset of 'brining people in' that has made her an effective leader, facilitator, and change agent.
The ‘new collar’ journey that led to her founding FIC Human Resource Partners began with Military Service as a Legal Specialist. Her nearly 4 years of service ended with an honorable discharge under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Once she transitioned back into the civilian workforce, she moved up from an hourly wage Service Technician position through Service, Branch, and Regional Manager positions before becoming the Director of Culture and Talent for the C3 Agency. At each step in her journey she gained new knowledge and experience that helped her develop the skills and tools that she is now offering to organizations such as yours.
