Jess is adept at communicating about complex sustainability issues with diverse audiences in ways that build cross-sector engagement. As FishWise's main point person for her company, she was reliable and efficient in managing requests and answering questions from FishWise on behalf of our major retailer partners. She is friendly and approachable, but also willing to have the tough conversations.Kathleen Mullen-Ley: Project Director at FishWise
Jess has been a great resource for unbiased, honest information about highly complex issues like sustainability, supply chain management, and bycatch. I find her understanding of the various complex issues to be years beyond her age and experience. She has a natural understanding of how things in the various fisheries work and more importantly how they could and should work.Craig Caryl: Co-Founder at SmartCSM
