Manage Up

Jessica Devine

Jessica Devine is the Founder of Todayist, an app that helps busy people be happy one step at a time. She is a former finance and management consultant and worked at the corporate level before jumping into entrepreneurship. Her previous roles ranged from personalized technology to creating the birthday fundraiser on Facebook. She leverages technology to scale a social impact for good. 

While she firmly believes that degrees are in no way a measure of a person’s abilities, Jessica had a fourth-grade math education and a subpar GPA — Santa Monica Community College offered her a gateway of opportunities. She holds a BA from the University of Southern California and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
