Latina. Fierce. Fighter. A San Diego native with a laugh as big as her hair. These are just a few words to describe founder and host of The Wine & Chisme Podcast, Jessica Yañez. But that's just the beginning.
Jessica grew up in the suburbs of San Diego and has always had a curiosity for other people and their stories. As far back as she can remember, she would be the first to approach a new student at school, introduce herself and want to know all about them. Not much has changed as her curiosity has lent itself well to learning more about the world around her.
She specifically created the podcast to amplify the voices of those from the BIPOC community to share their stories on career, love, life and more. All while sipping on a glass of wine.
She has had the opportunity to live across the Southwestern United States and has worked for organizations as large as the North Texas Super Bowl Host Committee to start up nonprofits. But ultimately there is no place like home for this San Diego girl and she has found her happy place where it all began.
"Everyone has a story. I just help people find it and share it."
