Jessica Stephanie A.

Co-Founder Project Everest Ventures, Head of University Engagement (VIC, SA, WA) || Leadership and Development



Three interesting facts about me: 1. I am an Australian title holder, we won a silver medal in the Open Women Short Course for Surf Boats in 2019 2. I have been to 43 countries, Timor-Leste, Vietnam, Cambodia, and India for work - the rest for travel. 3. I have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania I would describe myself as highly driven, extremely task-oriented, committed, and passionate. I don’t think I have worked a day in my life because I have absolutely loved my roles and projects. I have spent years travelling through Africa, Europe, and Asia, which was my most rewarding experience outside of work and team sports. I feel the benefit from that exposure to different countries and cultures is applied to my professional and personal life. My professional objective is to value-add, and to always go beyond what you think is first possible. I am attracted to organisations aimed at positive change, always with a focus on gender equality. My goals are achieved through sheer stubbornness, time, and without a doubt: a stellar team around me. Personality type: ENTJ. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jessicasarvela/
