Speech Pathologist working in rural and regional VIC/NSW
Jessica was born in Bendigo, Victoria in 1992. Her schooling was completed at Catholic College Bendigo before commencing a double degree at Latrobe University. Here she obtained an Undergraduate Degree in Health Sciences and a Masters in Speech Pathology in 2016. Jessica then moved to the Northern Mallee after gaining employment at Robinvale District Health Services as a Speech Pathologist – a career she is very passionate about.
Jessica has a keen interest in music and was a member and choir leader for the Bendigo Youth Choir for many years. This has enabled her to travel both nationally and internationally with the group. In her spare time she enjoys being active in the outdoors, exploring the region and travelling whenever possible.
Jessica now resides in the small riverside town of Euston in New South Wales. She works in Victoria and frequently travels to South Australia to visit her family and friends.
Jessica has a passion for rural health care and helping those who need it most. Access to equitable health care is an area of particular interest for Jessica. She is currently in the process of developing a telehealth program for regions without a speech pathologist.
