Throughout her time at Kamo High School, Jessica remained an active participant in many facets of school life. Her involvement included contributing to the running of a Whanau system at school, membership on the Sports Council, playing in the First XI soccer team and participation in a leadership programme to develop her natural skills in this field.
Jessica has always been academically strong in the Sciences and along with awards of recognition for excellent all-round effort, her school awarded her a prize for her achievements in Science in her Year 11. This ability, joined with her volunteer work at the SPCA has led to pursuing training in Veterinary Science. With the added pressures of living away from home Jessica's resilience is enabled her to currently study through Massey University in Palmerston North.
Jessica completed a BSc and a BVT (Bachelor of Veterinary Technology) at the end of 2015 and is heading back to Massey for three months to work as a locum technologist.
