A science graduate who chose business over a PhD, Jessica started her career in the City in learning and development at Barclays before pursuing a career as a coaching psychologist. Jessica worked with The Mind Gym for nearly a decade, designing and delivering development programmes for managers from blue-chips to SMEs in a variety of industries.

She describes herself as a running evangelist (check the hashtag #RunWithASmile on Twitter) and feminist who wonders why any right-minded person wouldn’t be. She has two sparky children and is a loved-up whippet owner.
