Dr. Jessica's Story

At the helm of SKYL Group stands an award-winning international speaker, best-selling author, and a proven change catalyst--Dr. Jessica Metcalfe. Her diverse career spans from managing provincial operations at Nestle Canada's Ice Cream Division, operating a rock 'n' roll music school, to being an esteemed Dental Oncologist and Education Director where she was instrumental in the inception of the first dental oncology fellowship program in Canada. She weaves together a tapestry of experiences and an extraordinary passion for leadership and teaching.

Dr. Jessica's journey is not just one of professional accomplishment but of personal resilience. At the tender age of 20, she navigated a sea of trials - her mother's near-death car accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury, the tragic suicide of a young cousin, and grappling with her own learning disability. In her late 20s, while scaling the peaks of her career, she faced mental health challenges, with clinical depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and burnout.

Today, as the founder of SKYL Group, she empowers individuals and organizations, leveraging her unique experiences and lessons learned. Her work has earned global recognition, but she views her most significant accomplishment as the positive impact she's made on the lives of others. Beginning her mission with improving patients' quality of life post-cancer therapy, she now strives to enhance the quality of life within companies and for the people who bring them to life.

I wanted to stop feeling guilty as a boss and leader and wanted to be confident in my decision-making abilities. It takes time to transform people, culture, and processes but it's totally worth it. - Business Owner

Not only was it life changing to have my feelings validated...Dr. Jessica provided tangible solutions and strategies for overcoming thoughts. She's has an honest yet humorous way of breaking down such a tough subject. - Clinician
