Motivated by the prospect of being part of a team striving to change the way disability is perceived globally, Jess joined The Lucy Foundation in 2014.
With 14 years experience in Event and Café Management and a passion for conscious sustainable living and disability inclusion, Jess is excited to put her skills into action on the ground in Mexico, with The Lucy Foundation coffee project. Being half Mexican herself, Jess loves to use food and cooking to bring people together and encourage sustainable, healthy living.
Jess (along with husband Ryan, and children, Lorenzo and Ebony) currently live in rural Waikato, where Jess home schools the kids. Together, as a family they are working towards moving to Mexico in August 2016.
