Reception Angel

Jess’ favourite quote is:

“There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking.”

Jess holds fort at our front-of-house with her positivity and beautiful nature. She believes in the power of the mind and doesn’t let limiting thoughts stop her from achieving great things.

With a creative background in Film, Television and Fashion, Jess adds her own touch of confidence and style to our team.

Jess loves being surrounded by creatives and people who work hard to achieve what they believe in.

She is inspired by the timeless style icon, Edie Sedgwick who was ahead of her time with fashion and her overall look. She was outrageous and fascinating.
