I'm Jessica, a wellness writer, speaker and guide. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ME HERE:
My career started in the corporate world
After graduating in Biology, I worked at a competitive professional services firm and trained to be a Chartered Accountant (I know, stay with me!). I was surrounded by smart, lovely people, but started feeling the urge to dig an escape tunnel pretty quickly. I realized I wanted to use my heart as well as my head in my work and, after 5 years, I left to run an angel investment network to help entrepreneurs grow their start-ups.
Personal development transformed my life
I dived into my own personal development journey after being floored by a long-term relationship break-up in my late 20s. I didn't want to keep repeating the same patterns, and knew I needed to strengthen my emotional, intuitive side that formal education had failed to cover. Over the years, I read 200+ personal development books; trained to be a meditation guide and energy healer; and discovered some of the world's best personal development coaches, courses and silent retreats. I learned how to trust myself, to set boundaries around what I was and wasn't happy with, and to have healthier relationships. I identified what really made me happy (and how to let go of what didn't), and the art of worrying less about the past or future, but instead staying in the now.
I love sharing what I've learned
Friends kept asking for my tips and recommendations, so I decided to share my knowledge more widely. I joined Niraj Shah as a co-founder of Mind: Unlocked in 2018 - to make practical, science-led mental well-being content, workshops and online courses. I professionally write and speak at international events on topics like mindset optimization, intuition and relationships. My articles have been read over 100k times, and my work has been featured by the likes of the BBC, Thrive Global, PwC, Economia Magazine and Wanderlust Festival.
I'm here to help you feel empowered to live the life you crave to live for yourself too. My work covers various themes centered around daily wellness wins, real-life connection (to you, people in your life & nature) and heart-centered well-being.
