A passionate endo warrior who thrives in helping others, Jess has recently moved to country NSW and is keen to push for endo awareness throughout regional communities. Jess met her loving partner Farmer Andrew on the 2021 season of Farmer Wants A Wife and shortly after her move to the country, Jess discovered there is no gynaecologist for over 130km’s from her new hometown.
Diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis at the age of 23, Jess was advised after her first surgery that she would have had endo since the age of 13 or 14, making it 10 years of misdiagnosed ‘painful periods’. Jess has presented publicly on the importance of conversations around periods and believes when the stigma around these conversations is removed, endo sufferers are diagnosed much earlier.
Jess has an established career in Relationship Management and is eager to utilise her welcoming and approachable personality to drive education around endo. Extensive expertise working with people has given Jess the tools to engage with her audience and push for change.
“It is an honour and a privilege to be provided the opportunity to promote endometriosis awareness. To anyone suffering, have comfort in knowing your pain is real, you are not being dramatic and you are certainly not alone.”
