HealthyWomen’s Director of Marketing and Communications
During her 15-year career, Jessica Goddard has touched every aspect of communications — from content strategy to corporate communications — with expertise in health, wellness, social impact and organizational and self-transformation.
Jessica began her career at Chamberlain Healthcare Public Relations where she counseled pharma and nonprofit organizations in a broad array of PR activities around regulatory milestones, data announcements, large-scale disease awareness and celebrity campaigns, issues management, patient stories and partnerships. She later joined WebMD where she managed continuing medical education online programs – for Medscape in the U.S. and WebMD Global in Europe – across a variety of therapeutic areas.
Jessica also has experience leading transformational workshops for both organizations and individuals. As a consultant for a leadership and management firm, she worked with senior leaders to produce dramatic shifts in performance. She was responsible for quickly migrating those programs from in-person to online. She also led workshops to empower individuals to turn their limitations into catalysts and transform their passion into purpose. She was responsible for the publicity and delivery of workshops, as well as creating and editing content, managing social media channels, and producing digital offerings, such as webinars and podcasts.
Jessica holds a master’s in public communications and a bachelor’s in journalism with a minor in psychology from Fordham University in New York City. She lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, with her husband, two kids and lab mix.
In her free time, Jessica can be found writing, listening to podcasts or doing Zumba.
