Jessie has always had a passion to help young people strive and achieve their potential, while recognising that one’s adolescent years can be turbulent and detrimental without the right foundation and support. Completing a bachelor’s degree in Social Welfare majoring in youth work, Jessie is determined to make lasting change in today’s young people.
With a background of school-based mentor programs at Arcadia College Jessie is no stranger to the classroom. Along with her time at the fore front of the health pandemic COVID-19 Jessie was providing emergency relief through the St Johns crisis centre. Equipping Jessie with a multi-faceted set of skills ranging from food relief, drugs and alcohol, homelessness, family outreach programs, as well as domestic and family violence.
