Jessica began her career in video editing after studying Motion Picture Production at the Tshwane University of Technology. After volunteering at an animal shelter, she turned her focus to studying companion animal behaviour. She has since qualified as a ThinkingPets Conti-Puppy Instructor, and holds the NOCN UK accredited Diploma through COAPE International. She now marks and tutors the Diploma course for COAPE International. She also serves on the committee for the Midrand SPCA.
After having children, Jessica developed a keen interest in early child development. This led her to become a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator.
Jessica currently runs two companies: Best Behaviour: Animal Behaviour & Training, and Best Behaviour: Parent Education & Training. This deep understanding of animal and human emotion allows her to offer unrivalled support for the families with whom she works. She is deeply grateful to have joined forces with Clare Emms to and the other founding members to create the Conscious Parenting Association of South Africa. Despite her qualifications, Jessica remains well trained by her dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, rats, and two young sons.
