Jessica is a Staff Writer for PetsRadar and has written for online magazines since graduating with a Masters in Journalism in 2021. Her career in journalism began in local news before she took on the world of digital publishing and has previously written for informative lifestyle sites including Fit&Well and Runners World, penning news and features on fitness, sportswear and nutrition.
She has a bank of experience working on buying guides and writing reviews on products to help people make the right decisions when it comes to spending. Jessica has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to testing items to find out the good, bad, and everything in between and is already busy applying this to all things pet-related. She grew up with her four-legged friend called Sam, a chaotic rescue golden lurcher who certainly taught her how big a task it is to care for a pet.
Jessica has a real interest in nutrition, particularly how it can enhance your health and how to keep this affordable. She thinks this is just as important for our pets as it is for humans and loves learning more about this from experts in the industry.
When Jessica isn’t at her desk she spends her weekends ticking off ParkRuns (trying to keep up with fellow runners who bring their speedy canines with them), on the hunt for a good flat white, or escaping the city for some seaside or countryside fresh air.
