Jessica joined the rehabilitation specialists in late 2016 as a Case Manager while completing her Master of Occupational Therapy. Jessica has seven years’ experience in the Commonwealth public service, most notably working on programs that coach employers on recruiting and retaining staff with disabilities and injuries. Prior to that, she spent two years as an Employment Consultant in the recruitment industry, where she specialised in assisting clients who were long term unemployed.
As someone who has managed staff with complex injuries in the APS, Jessica has a genuine understanding of the needs and challenges of employers when supporting injured staff back into the workplace. She has an in depth understanding of how the public service works, and passionately believes that with the right assistance, some creativity and collaboration, returning to work can be a rewarding experience for all involved.
