Director of Editorial Operations

Contact Jess

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Jess has lived in Los Angeles since 2012, and while she still misses the coffee and superior breakfast foods, she's fully assimilated into a taco-hunting, strip mall sushi-eating Angeleno. Before moving to the US, Jess was the Editor of Broadsheet Melbourne and wrote about fashion, design, and food. After a couple years writing about beauty at Violet Grey, she joined The Infatuation as a writer in LA and now keeps the entire editorial team organized as Director of Editorial Operations. If she's not gently reminding the team about something on Slack, she's probably recommending a novel or convincing the LA editorial staff that they should take her to dinner.
