Jessica has always loved to write but she also has a strong desire to help people, so she chose to study both law and creative writing. Much to her surprise, she found that the law captured her imagination with its dynamic nature and real world adventures, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Over the course of her journey, Jessica has worked in large firms, banks and small start-ups that went global and listed on the ASX. Her breadth of experience gives her a strong commercial edge, and when combined with her curiosity, Jessica has the ability to understand what motivates her clients to provide them with the service they need.

A deep appreciation for regulatory change forms the basis of Jessica’s expertise and she relishes the opportunity to decipher regulatory commentary, explanatory memorandum and parliamentary speeches. While most view these changes as obligations that must be met, Jessica prefers to look for opportunities where clients can sell change as a value add in their products or business.

From anti-money laundering (AML) obligations to changes that impact Australian Financial Service Licence (AFSL) holders, Jessica helps clients understand the changes that are coming, identify opportunities and integrate the changes into their business systems and documents.

She works with a broad range of clients from digital exchange currency start-ups to wealth and advice businesses, who all appreciate her candour and tenacity. From the outset, you know exactly what you can expect from Jessica and be confident that she’ll deliver what’s promised with competence and humour.

When she’s not working, Jessica can be found ferrying her young children to their many social activities or moving to the beat at a Zumba class. She also loves animals and has been known to surprise her husband with foster dogs and battery chickens that she’s rescued.

There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living
