Jessica Lorimer is on a mission to create a movement of women who are unapologetic about wanting success. A passionate and ambitious woman herself, Jessica left a highly successful and fast-paced corporate career in 2014 to launch her business and within 9 short months, the Jessica Larimer brand was making waves and getting noticed by the likes of Huffington Post and Forbes Magazine.
