About us Meet the Team Jess Leonard Senior Work Coach What do you love about working with bemix? I love that everyone is free to be themselves at bemix, there’s a really supportive and friendly atmosphere across all the different projects and everyone is linked by the fact that we all genuinely care about the work we do. It sounds like a cliche but there is a real family feel. How long have you been involved with bemix? I started in January 2020 What is your role in bemix? I’m the Senior Work Coach for Swale and also lead the lead for the bemix Peer Support Groups What did you do before you joined bemix? I worked for a therapeutic fostering organisation for 6 years before bemix. I’ve worked in offices and hospitality as well, but always wanted a role working face to face with people, especially with a focus on mental health and wellbeing. What do you enjoy doing when you're not working? I have 4 children and am studying to be a counsellor in my spare time so life is usually pretty busy! We like to get outdoors and explore at weekends and I've also usually got at least 4 books on the go!
