Jess has had a unique and diverse working background. She completed a Masters of Fine Arts with dreams of becoming a painter. She followed with a Diploma of Interior Design where she spent the next 5 years working for top Sydney architecture firms.
After realising that the fast paced, high-demand lifestyle of design in the city did not align with her personality, Jess made the change to Byron Bay to slow down and connect with a warm and welcoming community.
Since then, Jess has worked her way up from front office staff at a local hostel through to heading event management at The Byron at Byron Resort.
Her organisation skills, project management, creative outlook and understanding of architecture and design has seen her fit seamlessly into the marketing team. She looks forward to a long and fulfilling career within the First National family.
