Jessica Rowe is an accomplished journalist, television presenter and three-time best selling author. Jessica’s credits include co-hosting Studio 10 and The Today Show. She was also the news presenter for Weekend Sunrise, and for a decade Jessica co-hosted Network Ten’s First at Five news.

The crap housewife is a badge she wears with pride, and it's a title she wants other women to embrace. For Jessica, the idea of 'crap' is the real life messes, hiccups, disasters and bad meals that many of us dish up and deal with every day. This mum is tired of the photos of perfectly packed school lunches, posts about cuisine family dinners eaten together over the table, plus tales of neat, tidy and obedient children with smoothly brushed hair. Why not cut the crap, take the pressure off and admit to the moments, days, weeks and months when the wheels do fall off?

Her recent book is the bestselling 'Is This My Beautiful Life?', an honest and raw account of balancing motherhood with mental illness, career and family. She is passionate about advocating for better mental health awareness and support for new mums.

Jessica is a notorious over-sharer, much to her husband's frequent horror and her daughters' embarrassment.
