Jessica’s life changed course dramatically at the end of January 2016, when an unexpected seizure led to the diagnosis of an aggressive brain tumor.

She’s been blogging intermittently ever since, sharing the updates, insights, ideas, frustrations and cocktail of emotions experienced as a result of this diagnosis. She wants to channel her energy, frustrations and ideas into ways to accelerate progress against brain cancer.

Jessica is a strategic communications consultant aka Natural Born Campaigner.

And a mother of three. And a wife and partner. And a Brit living in NYC.

She is currently on medical leave from her position as Senior Vice President and Partner at FleishmanHillard in New York City.

She has named her brain tumor ‘The Evil Fucker’, or ‘TEF’.
