Business Development Guru

Jessie Jeffery, Business Development Guru, CyberGuruJessie Jeffery
PhD, MPH, BSc (Hons)

The newest member of the team, Jessie had an extensive career in medical research prior to joining CyberGuru. During her time in research she published ten papers in respected journals and gained skills in statistical analysis, grant writing, logical thinking, troubleshooting and project management. She also developed a strong interest in education and supervised many high school and university students.

Her non-traditional pathway into the ICT sector has enabled her to bring an alternate perspective to the industry, allowing her to produce creative and innovative solutions. Her interests include data analysis, digital media, 3D printing and coding.

Jessie is particularly interested in helping teachers become competent and confident in teaching STEM. She aims to engage students in their learning through the use of cutting edge technology.
“People use and are impacted by STEM discoveries every day without even realising it,” she says. “We need to encourage students to embrace these technologies by implementing them in subjects that would traditionally be considered to be non-STEM.”
