While spending the majority of her life living and working in Geelong, Jessica spent 12 months living in France and Austria studying and exploring. With a background in Event Management, Jess has worked on just about every type of event you can think of with one of her favourites being the Melbourne Fashion Festival. More recently Jess has moved into a new role with the Give Where You Live Foundation looking after over 200 Business Partners and Workplace Giving Companies, as well as running the iconic Workplace Giving and Loaned Executive Program. On the weekends you’ll find her attempting renovations to her house and walking her 42kg puppy.
I’m inspired by women in business who appear to manage high level roles, a family and their sanity!
I relax by doing yoga or watching a series like Narcos or GOT
I’m happiest when I’m on holidays, or with friends
When I was little I always wanted to be a singer, although I am absolutely tone deaf
My big dream now is to be able to take off a year or two and travel
My dream holiday destination is somewhere exotic with no internet or phone service
Highlight of my career so far was speaking at the International Special Events Society’s national conference in Sydney and their Student Conference in Melbourne
