“I had never considered consulting but suddenly, I had this vision of myself in a lab day in and day out,” Jess said. “As someone who thrives on interaction, I realized it just wasn’t me.”

So she started researching ZS, and made a number of connections. “I liked that I’d still be able to apply my education in the healthcare field, but what really sold me was the people. Everyone I met was so dynamic.”
