Jess joined the Human Factors group at Team Consulting in February 2016. Jess is responsible for planning and implementing formative and summative studies both directly for our clients and as part of our product development process.

“I have experienced first-hand how design and usability of a device can influence the end product. I promote consideration of the device user throughout the product life cycle to ensure maximum benefit of the product.”

“Team combines a great environment with knowledgeable and committed people who are keen to deliver a pragmatic approach to addressing the client’s needs.”

Jess has over 15 years’ experience in the in-vitro diagnostics and medical devices industry. During this time she has worked in product/clinical development in a start-up medical device company and also facilitated numerous usability studies on all sorts of projects.
