Working on Peramangk and Kaurna Lands
A teacher by training, Jess combines her experience in the education sector, youth justice, and policy and research to improve outcomes for people with social challenges.
A natural listener, Jess loves working with people who have had unique life experiences to get their input and insights. She loves asking questions and trying to understand other people’s perspectives, and hopes her time at TACSI will allow her to play a role in supporting people to have their voices heard and acted on by decision makers.
Jess is currently the Lead of the Our Town initiative, working with South Australian towns on community led wellbeing.
When she’s not at work, you’ll find Jess spending her time with her kids, wrangling the five acre garden on her Adelaide Hills property, and listening to podcasts.
