With senior expertise bridging the worlds of film, television & non-profits, Jessica leads many of Doc Society's key partnerships and projects, with a current focus of maximising the creative and impact potential of climate storytelling in the Climate Story Unit.

Building on a 15 year career as a documentary & factual television producer, Jessica moved into strategic communications consultancy, leading multiple projects for prominent NGOs. Returning to narrative storytelling with an invigorated perspective on its potential, Jessica was an impact strategist on award-winning films such as Unrest, He Named Me Malala and Ida's Diary. After years of collaboration with the organisation, Jessica went in house at Doc Society in 2016.
