Jessica has over ten years’ experience as an environmental engineer in the water industry providing a wide range of specialist water services to the public and private sectors. Jessica has lived and worked across the three states of the eastern seaboard, and gained invaluable knowledge within the different policy contexts.

Jessica’s project management role, supported by her extensive technical expertise, has enabled her to lead contracts from strategy through to construction delivery on large scale stormwater and WSUD infrastructure. This is through a particular focus on quality and collaborating with Melbourne Water, or other key authorities, often the ultimate beneficiary of such assets.

Integrating all this, Jessica’s passion lies in protecting waterways and enabling green links for healthy communities. Understanding the rapidly changing nature of the water industry, Jessica is at the forefront of this space through involvement in industry committees, such as Stormwater Victoria and ALDE, as well as regularly contributing and sharing knowledge through conferences, events, standards and guidelines.
