Favorite core value at DIG

Her favorite core value at DIG is DESIRE. Jessica says, “When I see a player that will give their all for the sake of the team’s success and pursue the opportunities that will get them there, I am elated! You can have all the talent in the world and still miss it. Words are empty without action; seeing a player never give up and keep in good spirits through the challenges and losses is so important to me.” She has had great success in pushing her teams to be the best version of themselves.
