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’m currently acting editor for fashion retail magazine Boutique. I’ve written for Metro, British Airways’ The Club, Jaguar Land Rover’s InMotion, North Norfolk Living, Business Review Europe, Construction Global, and Your Cat magazine. I’m also a regular contributor to Drivetribe and am BBC Radio Norfolk’s motoring expert.

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.

As well as being a journalist, I also work in motorsport and run Racing Mentor. Through this, I coach racing drivers, and anyone looking for a career in motorsport, on how to be a success and open up as many opportunities as possible. I am also a former Porsche race team boss.
