Jess has worked within the community and aged services sector for over a decade in various roles that have allowed her to engage with a large demographic of individuals providing essential support and care. Whilst completing university studies in exercise science and sports management, Jess developed a passion in working closely with the elderly and through this decided to undertake a diploma of nursing enabling her to continue to build on her skills and knowledge.
Jess is SAV’s newly appointed Shepparton Stroke Support Coordinator. Her role primarily focuses on connecting with the wider community, establishing partnerships with other relevant service providers, fundraising, and most importantly building a Stroke Support Centre for stroke survivors and their carers to enjoy and be proud of.
Jess lives on a rural property with her husband and two daughters. She has a love of family, martial arts, hiking and gardening.
