  • Jess CCK Volunteer

    Jess has a Bachelor of Primary Education (Special Needs) and is currently studying a Diploma of Auslan. She hopes to begin a Bachelor of Art Therapy soon, so she can help Deaf and non-speaking people through creativity.

She has also worked with two different post school social businesses for disabled young adults: a craft and woodwork workshop, and a recreation company.

The values of equity, wellbeing, compassion, empathy, empowerment, and respect are very important to her. Jess enjoys using art to engage children in learning about their wellbeing.

    In her free time, Jess loves spending time with her dog (Ivy-Mae), making art, going to adapted Kung Fu, and visiting museums and cafes with her friends. Jess is a unique and proud disabled person.
