Jess is originally from Otautahi where she studied a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Canterbury.  During her studies Jess volunteered at her local Community Law Centre which she thoroughly enjoyed.  Jess has recently relocated to Gisborne after falling in love with the area after holidaying here with her husband Izzy.  She looks forward to what Gisborne has to offer and meeting new people.


Jess loves spending time with her whanau, friends and dog, Flossy.  She is very passionate about both of her dominant cultures and is currently learning both languages; that being, Māori and Dutch.  Jess enjoys the outdoors and looks forward to tramping, camping, and swimming around Gisborne.
