Jess left Massey University in 2012 after gaining a Bachelor of Science and a Graduate Diploma in Teaching. She moved to Hokitika in 2013 and took up various relief teaching opportunities before joining the clinic in 2015. Jess is originally from a dairy farm in the Waikato and is most at home in a pair of gumboots! In her spare time she loves exploring the outdoors and baking. She also has one very spoilt cat, Jezebel, who hates to visit the vet clinic!
