Jessica Gilchrist is an entrepreneur who wants to live in a world filled with innovative business.
She is an exuberant go-getter constantly poised to tackle the next big challenge. She has used her experience to turn events into moments of wonder and has transformed a conservative chocolate tour business into a thriving and cutting edge Melbourne experience. Jess then turned to a new adventure, where she founded Pink Boots Hire with her father and brother, a social enterprise that has a big vision to improve well-being and make a difference in the lives of people going through cancer. She continues watching from afar with Pink Boots Hire and has now turned to the Medico-Legal Industry and works closely to the lawyers and barristers of the world.
Jess sees what she does as more than a job, she is on a mission to transform and illuminate, with a sharp eye for detail and execution.
Jess beat a serious battle with cancer in 2016 and of course, she approached her cancer journey the same way she faces every bump in the road, with tenacity and optimism.
Jessica is a powerhouse.
