POWERful Team Testimonials

There are many times when a moment catches you by surprise and you reflect on exactly what decisions brought you to this exact place and time. In the time I have been with Powerhouse, I have had many such moments. Inevitably, a smile creeps up my face and I whisper, “Today was made possible by Powerhouse. Thank you.” I couldn’t be more grateful to have found such a vibrant, caring, creative, and flexible work family. Powerhouse allows me the opportunity to exercise my assorted skills, foster a sense of purpose, and contribute to both society and my family’s income all on a flexible schedule. When I applied to Powerhouse all I was expecting was a job—simply a way to earn money for services performed. Yet what I found in the amazing company Jess has painstakingly built was so much more! An environment full of encouragement, passion, integrity, kindness, and family. I couldn’t be prouder to call Powerhouse my work “home,” and I look forward to tomorrow being another amazing day, “made possible by Powerhouse!”

I am truly thankful to have found a “work home” at Powerhouse Planning. Powerhouse is exactly what I needed in my life: a fulfilling job with flexible work hours, interesting contracts/clients, and a group of supportive colleagues who are like “family”! Powerhouse Planning has enabled me to support and spend time with my family but also have a career that I enjoy every day. Not only has the owner, Jessica, given me clients for which I can showcase my skills, she also has given me the opportunity to learn new skills to broaden my marketability with other clients. My supportive and friendly colleagues really make Powerhouse one of the best places to work! Getting to know them and learning from them have made me a better person and colleague. The open, friendly—but professional—atmosphere at Powerhouse is a true testament to Jessica’s nature and approach to running her company.

Amy Lee,
Client Care Manager and Proud Military Spouse (retired)

I am so grateful to be a part of team Powerhouse. I spent nearly two years as a Powerhouse superfan, following on social media and seeing the incredible work they do. Finally, in February 2022, Powerhouse found a place for me. Since then, I’ve served in various roles and worked with incredibly talented and kind people. I look forward to “going” to work every day, using my skills and talents, and learning new things, too! My role at Powerhouse gives me the opportunity to put my hard-earned education to work while also having the flexibility to be available for my family. I can’t say enough about the amazing work Powerhouse does and what a blessing it is to work on the team.

Maria Mitchell,
Powerhouse Operations Director and Proud Military Spouse

When I’m asked what I do, I just say “marketing” because I get to do a little bit of everything working at Powerhouse Planning. While many organizations want you to “stay in your lane,” Jessica Bertsch has fostered an environment where you can grow in your personal career goals—which leads to excellent client outcomes. I’ve been so fortunate to work for Powerhouse since 2016, and I never thought I would have such a fulfilling career, especially as a military spouse. I used to mourn not working a traditional 9-to-5 in an office, but, looking back, I would have never gained the skills and experience I have outside of my powerful time at Powerhouse. I also have a healthy work-life balance and don’t feel like I have to choose between my career and having a life well lived. I cannot say enough about the Powerhouse Planning team and the incredible opportunities working with them affords.

Jessica Yost,
Strategic Marketing Consultant and Proud Military Spouse

I am so pleased to have found my place at Powerhouse Planning. The clients are interesting, projects are varied, and most importantly—the people I get to work with are all amazing people. “Going to work” in a fully remote environment can make it difficult to feel connected; however, Powerhouse has mastered the small-office feel while making it fit into a flexible, constantly changing lifestyle. With so many teammates being military spouses or veterans, it makes sense that service and giving back are such large parts of who Powerhouse is. I love that Powerhouse is so committed not only to giving back to nonprofits and other worthy causes, but also to empowering Powerhouse freelancers to have opportunities to grow and learn new things. I am proud to be a part of Powerhouse.

Sarah Zerr,
Project Manager, Veteran, and Proud Military Spouse

I’ve witnessed the tremendous success of Powerhouse from its inception, though I only became a member of the Powerhouse family in December 2016. From the beginning, Jess and the amazing talent she discovers have made Powerhouse more of a world-wide family than just an incredibly exceptional place to work. Each Powerhouse employee is made to feel like a significant contributor to the company’s success, and our clients are among the best on the planet. Add in the fact that Powerhouse allows me to have a truly portable career, enabling me to find a perfect balance between work and home, and I feel like I won the lottery the day I was hired! With such a diversity of talented coworkers doing such fantastic things from literally anywhere, Powerhouse is truly the Little Engine that DOES, every day, everywhere. I’m just so honored to be a tiny, tiny part of that commitment, dedication, and success.

Heatherlynn Akins,
Technical Writer and Proud Military Spouse (retired)

I am incredibly grateful to be a part of the amazing team at Powerhouse Planning. When I became a military spouse, I vowed to support my husband’s service and sacrifices—which meant undertaking a series of geographical moves across the country and eventually overseas. I wondered if I could ever again have a successful and fulfilling career while navigating this new sea state of military life and motherhood. I held hope that I would again find an organization with the level of leadership I had been accustomed to in my early career, but also one that would empower me to maintain a career—wherever our military service would take us. After several years of searching for the best fit, I found Powerhouse, and it stood out like a brilliant lighthouse through a deep fog. I am impressed by the leadership and teamwork evidenced daily, and I feel fortunate to work with such a talented group of individuals. Powerhouse has given me the opportunity for meaningful work, unparalleled work-life balance, and the chance to learn and grow in a career that can go wherever we are called to serve. Thank you, Jessica Bertsch. Thank you, Powerhouse.

Julie Kirchner,
Technical Writer and Proud Coast Guard Spouse

I am extremely proud and honored to be a part of the Powerhouse Planning team. My favorite things about working with Powerhouse include the opportunity for a healthy work/life balance, the encouragement and support to continue to grow and utilize my professional skills while I was supporting my husband’s service to our country, and the ability to connect and work with a tremendous team around the world to provide amazing services to the clients who contract with Powerhouse. I am most proud to work with Powerhouse because of the integrity and top-notch, service-oriented business ethic Jessica holds strong to in every decision she makes on behalf of both Powerhouse and our clients.

Jennifer Kirkpatrick,
Powerhouse Experience Manager, Project Manager, and Proud Military Spouse (retired)

Being part of the Powerhouse team is truly a blessing! Not only has Powerhouse given me the opportunity to be a work-from-home mom while also supporting my husband’s military career, but I have been able to continue my career and grow myself professionally as well! Jessica has a superpower to recognize people’s hidden talents, and that is part of what makes Powerhouse so great. The amount of talent on our team is incredible! Another thing I love about Powerhouse is getting to know our clients, their stories of how they got started, and where they want to go. Having the opportunity to come alongside them, cheering them on and watching their companies grow, has been so rewarding. Every day I wake up feeling thankful and blessed for a healthy work/life balance that allows me to continue my career while also being present with my family. When you work as a freelancer for Powerhouse, you don’t just become part of a very supportive, dynamic, and passionate team—you become family.

Meghan Traynor,
Executive Assistant, Content Creator, and Proud Military Spouse

Powerhouse Planning is an incredible company to work for. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of a team that utilizes military spouses as their main workforce. I love that Powerhouse Planning allows me to support my husband’s career while growing my own. Jessica searches far and wide to find the best freelancers to cooperatively create stunning marketing and communication packages for today’s workforce.

Amanda Higgs,
Videographer and Proud Military Spouse (retired)

Working with Powerhouse has been a joy. Jessica’s passion and positive attitude are infectious, and I’m proud to be a part of her successes. Many of my family members have served our country over the years in various branches of our military. Living in Hampton Roads, Virginia, and having friends who serve, have served, or support their husbands/wives/children as they serve have just made my admiration, gratitude, and respect for the individuals in our military stronger. I feel so lucky to be a part of what Jessica and Powerhouse do!

Jennifer McKee,
Quality Assurance Specialist and Technical Writer

When I think of Powerhouse, I think of family. Not only does Powerhouse support me as a parent by allowing me to work from home as I raise my son, but Powerhouse also treats everyone like family. No matter how much geographical distance separates us, those of us who work with Powerhouse feel connected to the vision and leadership of the company. Ultimately, Powerhouse places value on supporting families, particularly those who serve our country, and that’s a mission I can get behind every day.

Nicole Keeny,
Quality Assurance Specialist and Technical Writer

Working with Powerhouse President Jessica Bertsch and experiencing her energy and drive are inspiring to me. I have gotten a lot of satisfaction from helping Powerhouse grow to where it is today. Being able to use my creativity and meet interesting customers makes the job worthwhile, and as long as I am a part of this company I know more exciting challenges lie ahead. The thing I appreciate most about Powerhouse is that it has given me the opportunity to balance work and life by allowing me to work flexible hours. I will always be thankful to Powerhouse for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to grow, not only within the company, but also as a person.
