Jess joins the AIP Group as a Client Manager, applying her combination of skills from years of experience in sales, coaching and adventuring.
As a corporate sales executive, Jess learnt the value of asking questions, listening with intent, and exploring options as an integral part of identifying client needs. Her focus on the client was rewarded with her company’s Rep of the Year Award in 2019.
Coaching others to grow and perform at their very best is a true passion for Jess. She leverages her background as an athlete as a foundation for excellence. Jess was a Division 1 athlete who captained the women’s lacrosse program at the University of Connecticut, and she advanced to the final round of the U.S trials. After leaving college, Jess spent a year coaching lacrosse in the UK and then spent another five years coaching at the collegiate level.
From an adventure perspective, Jess used one week of her vacation to join a team competing in the toughest footrace in the world – the Badwater – a 135 mile run across Death Valley. Jess is in pursuit of her own racing career and plans to forge her own path amongst the best ultrarunners in the world.
