After meeting Jackie at the BioBusiness Summer School in June 2015, I was immediately impressed with her straight-up pleasantness and tact. Immediately one notices her keen ability to listen well and deliver candid advice. These core skills have everything to do with the influence she has had on my career path as a startup founder. She has an innate foresight to see the strengths in others and delivers well-balanced, honest advice. Her engaging writing style inspired simplicity in my own writing. So.. she has inspired me at many levels. To prospective clients at JLJ Consultancy: expect high-quality, engaging products and advice from a well-rounded and dedicated professional.
Jackie has been of great help! I consulted her for career advice, resume and CV services and gave me useful and valuable information. Jackie has an incredibly positive spirit. She left me super motivated!!

Jackie´s ability to motivate, support and provide constructive feedback is impressive. She expertly puts any issue in a nutshell – as a medical communicator as well as a coach. Sharing experiences and knowledge is natural for Jackie. As associate consultant in medical communication, I experienced Jackie as a great coach and mentor. No matter how busy she was as director, Jackie always made sure to support clients and co-workers and meet deadlines. Jackie is a creative and dedicated medical communicator and career coach and earns my highest recommendation.

Jackie has been incredibly supportive and wonderful to work with. As an up and coming science writer she has brought me new connections, supported the publication of my work, and left me feeling energized and excited. Her willingness to leverage her extensive knowledge and connection with the scientific community to help others is testament to her kind and supportive nature. I have only good things to say about Jackie.

Jackie is THE career consultant that you need to work with for a successful transition outside academia. When I first contacted her, I had no idea of the career path I wanted to follow outside of the lab. In no time, she helped me to define my translational skills and my interests in science and medical communications. Since the beginning, I was impressed by her knowledge and by the quality of her reviews regarding my resume, my LinkedIn profile, and the cover letters. She gave me all the tools and the support I needed to prepare my job interviews. As a former Postdoctoral Fellow, she understood perfectly my needs and she kept me motivated during my job search. Jackie is enthusiastic, dynamic, positive and friendly. She was a great ally from day 1 to the day I found a job, and even beyond. I would have never found my dream job as quickly (3 months!) without her. I highly recommend Jackie as an accomplished career coach and a talented medical writer!

Meeting Jackie has offered me a new perspective on what ‘help’ means. She is a very friendly and generous person, that motivates you with her good energy. She has edited several drafts of my documents, and apart from proof-reading and editing them, she has kindly offered advice on the layout or content of the draft. She is a detail-oriented and well-organized editor. Furthermore, she has the ability to gently guide you in the right direction so that the final document is at its best. I can highly recommend her editing services
