I’m Jess – the face behind The Good Ones. For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in the environmental impacts of chemicals – especially those that we use everyday.

I have run with this interest professionally. I started out with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Hons). I majored in chemistry and graduated at the top of my year. I have also completed a Master of Environment, focusing on ways to reduce our environmental impact.

I have spent years working as a government regulatory scientist, researching and writing reports on the environmental risks of hundreds of chemicals. But the thing I enjoy the most is when a friend hands me something from their bathroom cupboard, and asks “Is this a good one?”.

I love sharing what I know with those around me. I want to provide you with the information you need to make more mindful decisions about your actions and ultimately contribute to a healthier environment. This is my aim with The Good Ones.
