Dr Jessica is a general practitioner with an interest in anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine, as well as holistic health care. She believes that optimal wellness requires attention to one's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. The role of nutrition in contributing to optimal health is a particular passion of hers as she believes it is too often overlooked in conventional medicine.
Anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine is a rapidly advancing, pioneering field that she is excited to grow in as a health professional. She is honoured to be a part of the Renewal Institute, which offers a complete, multi-dimensional approach to wellness.
She grew up and studied in Cape Town. After qualifying at the University of Cape Town, she worked as an intern for two years at the Pietermaritzburg Hospital complex in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This was followed by a year of community service in Kimberley in the Northern Cape, where she worked full time at a specialized mental health facility.
Dr Jessica lives in Douglasdale with her mischievous Jack Russell, Jilly. In her spare time, she enjoys trail running, yoga and discovering new places to enjoy a great coffee. She is consulting from the Brooklyn, Bedfordview, Fourways, West Rand and Illovo branches.
