Jess’ rise in Australian distance running was meteoric with victories in Adelaide’s City Bay Fun Run, Australian Cross Country Championships, the Melbourne Marathon Half Marathon and Sydney’s iconic City2Surf. These road and cross-country races built a strong foundation for her brave debut at the marathon distance in Nagoya Japan, March 2012.
When she is not pounding the pavement Jess works as a Physiotherapist, where she is particularly interested in biomechanical imbalances and their functional implications. Intelligent and articulate, yet humble in nature, Jess attributes her success quite simply to her love of running, disciplined approach to training, and the strong support she receives from family, friends, her coach Adam Didyk and training group Team Tempo.
