Originally from South Gippsland, Dr Jess completed her medical training in 2010 at Monash University and completed her medical internship at St Vincent’s Hospital before moving to Geelong to pursue a career in Family Medicine. She moved to Barwon Heads from Geelong in 2020 where she is now the co-director of Barwon Heads Family Practice.
