Jess is passionate about working with children, young adults and families to promote development, inclusion, hope and meaningful participation in everyday life. Growing up in a neuro-divergent family, Jess has always been keen on working with children and young adults who experience barriers to their health and well-being, including physical, cognitive, sensory, social, self-care and communication difficulties.
After completing a placement in neurological and physical rehabilitation whilst studying, Jess knew this was an area she wanted to pursue, which inspired her to apply for an occupational therapy role at NAPA. When Jess isn’t at NAPA, she’s usually drawing or painting, listening to music or seeing a new movie at the cinemas. Jess also loves playing soccer, and exploringoutdoors or going on adventures.
