Hey, friend! I’m Jaye. I can't say enough how excited I am to welcome you to the SOLA family! My personal hope is that no matter where life is taking you, you know that you have a home full of resources to help navigate your journey.

Just like all great things, the School of Life Academy started as just an idea back in 2019. Originally, it was only to be geared towards middle and high school students as an extension of the School of Life Podcast, but before I knew it, I was expanding that dream, and doing so quickly!

Through the academy I am able to use my transparency and unique skillset to: support the overall development of my fellow millennials, lead efforts to find solutions to business challenges, coach entrepreneurs to strategy success, and ultimately build lasting and impactful relationships. I can honestly say, there really is magic in being able to do something so much bigger than me.

Although I am a busy entrepreneur doing my best to create change, I also work as a Management Analyst/Comms. Director for the State of Delaware, and previously served as an Outreach Coordinator for Gwinnett County Government, in Georgia, and as an Executive Speech Writer and Communications Strategist at NASA in Huntsville, Alabama. I have additional experience working in communications and outreach strategy for other government sectors and academia.


I am a two-time graduate of Delaware State University (I love my HBCU) where I received my Master’s of Public Administration and Bachelor’s of Arts in Mass Communications degrees. In my down time, when I am not attempting to save the world, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, traveling, snuggling with a good book, or writing poetry.

currently live in Delray Beach, Florida where I am discovering the meaning of life, love, and rest. 

I look forward to connecting with you soon! In the meantime, catch up with me on IG @_missjaye and FB, Jacquaniese Washington.


Keep praying! Keep evolving! Keep growing!
