Jessica Jenkins - Business Made Personal Podcast

BMP Season 2 - Jessica Jenkins

A strong advocate for honesty and integrity, one of Victoria’s youngest-ever deputy mayor at 19 years of age, Jessica Jenkins felt at odds in the political world.

Her move into insurance has meant she has never looked back despite being made redundant when she was five months pregnant.

Apart from the numerous accolades Jessica has accumulated over her 20-year career, she is passionate about mentoring other young women to carve a successful career in the insurance sector.

“I went through a stage where I thought I had to be tough and I thought I had to be different to who I was to fit in. I was trying to change the stripes that I had been born with and failed miserably.”
