Jess is one of the wonderful OT’s working across Evolving Potential and Potential Ability and covers the Riverland and Mallee regions in a full-time capacity. Jess completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Occupational Therapy), graduating in 2015 and as part of her studies completed placements in rehabilitation on a Neurology and Orthopaedic ward, and Paediatric care in Cambodia.
Jess has always been very passionate about working with children and young adults/teens/young people and has fallen in love with working with adults through her current role. She understands the challenges faced living in a more rural region having grown up in the Riverland and is proud to be able to support her local community.
In her own time Jess is very involved in her local soccer club, having played since she was young. Jess loves everything about the river; camping, skiing, being on the water and swimming and often spends her weekends on the river, camping with her partner and their dog. Jess also enjoys being creative and makes time for painting, drawing, making dreamcatchers/crafts and playing music. As if that wasn’t enough… Jess loves to squeeze in some yoga every day too!
