Jessica Horn


Jess has ventured down several career paths in the past, but since recruiting found her, she hasn’t looked back! Prior to SwingSearch, Jess spent 3 years at a boutique executive search firm where she led searches for clients building high growth digital health companies. She’s passionate about making connections between executives and mission-driven organizations and is a firm believer that the right person in place can make or break the success of an early stage organization. 

Jess studied English at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. After growing up in New Jersey and spending many years in New York City, she’s excited to have settled in the Hudson Valley. When she isn’t working, you can find her skiing, hanging with her dog (Prabu), exercising, or curled up with a book.

Fun fact:

During the pandemic, Jess spent 8 months driving across the country with her dog, living in Airbnb’s exploring new places while working remotely.
