Jessica’s passion for running was ignited as a child in her hometown of Naracoorte in South Australia’s south east. Becoming an Olympian was a childhood dream and her successful sporting siblings Abbie and Jack inspired her to chase this goal in her early twenties.
Jess attributes her success quite simply to her love of running, determination, balanced approach to training and the strong support she receives from family, friends, her coach and training group.
Jess has won many of Australia's most iconic long distance running events, and conquered many of the world's most famous marathons.
Having achived her dream of representing Australia at the Olympics she made it onto the podium winning the marathon bronze medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
