Jessica Kirchner Flores

President, Impact Sciences
Impact Sciences was founded in 1988 with a staff of two and a vision to “be better.” In 2015, when the founders decided it was time for new leadership, they looked within the company. Having started as a senior project manager with the firm, Jessica Kirchner Flores stepped into the role of president and managing principal and is now using her knowledge and years of experience to move the firm forward. 
"Developing resiliency has been a big part of my journey. It's important to understand that there will be hard times, but that could mean there's something even better around the corner. If you miss ten shots in a row, chances are really good you're going to hit the next one. I saw a great quote recently "If one door closes another door opens, or you could just open the door because that's how doors work." Sometimes, it just takes a shift in perspective to find a way to open that door."
Impact Sciences provides environmental planning services in support of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). They prepare environmental impact reports (EIRs), negative declarations, exemptions, and streamlining tools for a variety of clients. Several of their clients include public agencies, universities, and private developers. 
"Having an opportunity to meet other women business owners has helped me to see the tremendous amount of female talent that is out there. I'm always inspired by the women I meet at NAWBO events. I hope I help other NAWBO-LA members by sharing knowledge, resources, and information. We are all so much stronger when we work together."
