Faces of TLF - Jess

Meet Jess, one of our Senior Business Consultants in the US office

Introduce yourself: who are you and what do you do within TLF?
Hi! I’m Jess, a level 3 Business Consultant at TLF. I’ve been working here since 2017 and spend most of my time helping customers solve problems and build new systems in the logistics and workforce areas.

What do you like about your particular role?
As BCs, the core of our work is problem-solving. I studied chemical engineering in college, and while there are definitely a lot of differences between that field and my role as a BC, the center of my work has always been solving problems, and that is what I love to do! I also enjoy all the opportunities to collaborate, both internally and with our customers. It is always cool to see how several people putting their ideas together can come up with something truly awesome.

What’s your favorite part about working for TLF overall, please explain.
We have a really great group of people, all over the world! It is incredible to get to work with really smart and kind people from countries across the world. We also have a great company culture, and it is nice to see this continue on even as we grow further 🙂

Who are you outside of TLF? Family/ friends, etc. How would they describe you?
I live in the city with my boyfriend and our two cats, with the rest of my family members living 30 minutes to 1.5 hours away. My friends and family would describe me as passionate (or maybe stubborn…), particularly about the things I care about most – be it my pets, Harry Potter, or the environment.

What do you like to do for fun/hobbies?
As much as I occasionally enjoy watching something new on Netflix (and am always open to recommendations!) I have trouble sitting still and turning off my brain for too long, so I like to occupy myself physically and mentally, be it: going to the gym to lift weights, long walks around the city, reading novels, listening to podcasts to learn about new things, or cooking/baking new recipes.

Any fun hidden talent or skillsets?
I am an expert at spotting cute dogs from a mile away!

A message to all?
