Jill Sessa: Vespa-riding, RV-living nomad
In 2013, Jill Sessa took off on what has turned into a 20,000-mile-plus road trip, first by bicycle, then cross country on a Vespa, and then moving into a tiny RV. A serial entrepreneur with a number of prior businesses, Jill now manages her website maintenance service, UltimateWPHelp, while enjoying an ever-changing view from the “office” window.
Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences
Spending my 42nd birthday at Badlands National Park, starting with a morning at the world-famous Wall Drug store and the afternoon and evening riding my Vespa around the park. I met a nomadic couple enjoying sunrise in the park and treated them to breakfast before we each took off to explore the outrageously beautiful landscape of the park. A far cry from my 40th, the day Hurricane Sandy hit NYC.
