Meet Jess Desjardins! Jess is currently an Executive Director at Morgan Stanley managing a large, diverse team. As recently as 8 years ago, however, she was a student at Barnard College trying to figure out how to find a fulfilling career that she could excel in. At our first-ever Ask Her Anything event, Jess is in the hot seat to answer your "Can I ask that??" questions.


  • How to nail being a first time manager
  • How to ask for and get the $$ you deserve
  • How to balance a fulfilling career with personal sacrifices
  • What it's like to manage a team that has more experience than you do
  • How to decide if grad school is the right next step for you
  • How to work your a$$ off without burning out
  • How to kill big presentations
  • What it's like to be a (young) woman in a position of authority


Ask Her Anything is part of the Ellevate YoPro's Feeling Inspired series, where busy young professionals come to engage with fellow Ellevate members on tough topics relevant to our day-to-day lives.
