But there's more to Jessica walking away from the TV job she held for five years.
"I could feel at the end of each show, not every day, but most days I would be close to tears," she shared with The Australian Women's Weekly. "I'd feel that behind my eyes and was just about keeping it together. And I thought, 'Why am I doing this to myself?'"
"I knew that I was heading down, I knew that my anxiety was there, that I was getting depressed and that if I didn't make a change I'd start to falter," she told the publication.
A mother to two girls, Allegra, 12, and Giselle, 10, Jessica has been a long-time advocate for mental health awareness, and has been candid about her own history with post-natal depression following the births of her daughters.
"I now wear my so-called 'failings' and 'flaws' like badges of honour as I've discovered the enormous power that comes from being vulnerable.”
