Biography:

Jessie is the executive director of The GroundSwell Project, a charity committed to creating a more death literate society, one where people and communities have the practical know-how needed to plan well for end of life. This means shifting focus from ‘talking about it’ to transforming this ‘difficult’ conversation into one of deep community engagement, social action and empowerment. Jessie is responsible for driving the growth and partnerships for social impact around end of life and supports the delivery of major projects and programs. As a learning entrepreneur, she works across commercial business, non-government organisations and social enterprises co-creating programs for social change. She has been on the board of the Groundswell Project for 4 years and in the role as Executive Director since early 2015.
