Freelance journalist Jess Shanahan

I am a freelance journalist living in Norfolk and I specialise in business and motoring features but often turn my hand to style, beauty and travel work too.

I’ve written for the likes of the Metro, British Airway’s The Club, Jaguar Land Rover’s InMotion, North Norfolk Living, Business Review Europe, Construction Global, and Your Cat Magazine. Take a look at my full portfolio below to see the work I’ve done in print, online, on the radio and on television too.

I am the editor of the local travel site Love Norfolk and it’s through this work that I was named as one of Lead Norfolk’s young leaders for 2015.

As well as being a journalist, I also work in motorsport and run the Porsche team Turn Eight Racing.
