Jessica is the 2017 Academic Officer for the Melbourne Dental Students’ Society. She completed VCE in 2011, finishing as Dux of her high school. She graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne in 2015, majoring in Defense and Disease. Currently, Jessica is a DDS3 student and aspires to be able to volunteer her dental skills in areas with significant barriers to oral healthcare in the near future.
Jessica’s role as Academic Officer will facilitate communication between staff and students. Do not hesitate to contact her if you have feedback or concerns that you would like to be voiced to the University or Dental Hospital. Jessica also hopes to make the transition for students into each year level smoother by organising senior student mentors who will be readily available to answer questions or queries throughout the year.
Outside of dentistry (and sometimes in lectures during uni), Jessica is usually either on Reddit, Youtube or Ozbargain. She is notorious for having heaps of tabs open in her internet browser, easily surpassing 50 tabs at any one time.
