Meet Jess

You can do anything you set your mind to

A decade ago, I thought I had my entire future all figured out. I had just graduated with honours from my postgraduate diploma in psychology and was awarded a full scholarship to begin a PhD. My tidy little ten-year plan encompassed following in the footsteps of my supervisor. Late one evening, the rug was completely pulled out from underneath me and while I didn’t know it yet, my life was about to change.

I was sitting in my parents' kitchen, when I felt this wave of inspiration wash over me. It was like a lightbulb lit up and I knew that I needed to start a YouTube channel. This was the beginning of Study With Jess. My mission was to empower people on a global scale to work smarter, not harder, achieve better work-life balance, and bring about long-lasting success.


The decision to take a leap of faith, back myself, and to quit my PhD changed my life forever

It was then, that for the first time ever, I realised the importance of honouring our own core values and embracing our authenticity for building our dream life - a life where success is defined on our own terms. Those early days were a whirlwind of learning. It showed me the importance of adopting a growth mindset and the belief that everything we ever do, will serve us in some way. This mindset has carried me through some of my toughest moments on this journey.

As I continued to share my process for creating a successful life, and watched these techniques transform lives, my mission became clear: to lead others to their highest potential. Now I want to help you find the clarity, calm, and confidence to create your authentic dream life and live with more joy, fulfilment, and ease than you ever thought possible.
