Continuing her love for the art of radio and broadcast, Jess continues to work as a freelance audio

In 2020 Jess completed a Masters of Environment with Distinction, researching climate change
mitigation and adaptation strategies from the local to global. She is now working as Program Manager at the Werribee River Association, delivering projects that use creativity and the arts to build community resilience, an understanding of the local ecology and grassroots action.

Jess continues to use sound and story as a tool to build understanding, connection and empowerment.
