I am currently
Hi there! My name is Jess and I’m currently living and travelling the northern rivers area of NSW. I’m a huge animal lover and I have spent the last five years working with animals in various roles, including with the RSPCA. I have lots of experience handling many different domestic animals and wildlife, and I have great experience working with dogs of all shapes and sizes!
I love nature and all things outdoors. I am currently very interested in permaculture and have been interning on a organic permaculture farm in Myocum, teaching me many useful skills in regenerative farming. I have also done gardening work back in Sydney and am very familiar with residential garden spaces.
I’m a fun, hardworking and reliable woman who is looking to expand my skill set and meet new people! I am fit and healthy and love living an active and social lifestyle whilst also enjoying my own alone time.
I would love any work away experience, and would definitely suit roles involving animals or bush regeneration.

More details about your skills
For the last five years I have been working in various animal care roles, including dog groomers, boarding kennels, and animal attendant roles. My last job was a animal attendant with the RSPCA. I am confident handling animals of all shapes and sizes both wild and domestic and have done an animal studies course at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo!
I have also worked as a gardener, kitchen hand and babysitter, so I would describe myself as a perfect all rounder for your home or place of work!
Whilst I have extensive experience with animals I also have skills in gardening and am looking to grow my knowledge of permaculture and regenerative farming/ bush care practices.
I have a sound knowledge of general gardening duties and can carry out a variety of tasks with ability and confidence. These include, but are not limited too; pruning, weeding and weed identification, harvest and planting, organisation of work areas, mowing, seeding and bed prep.
I am also great with children and have experience working alongside them and being a fun and quirky entertainer! I would describe myself as being very fit and healthy with a can do attitude and always up for a challenge or a spontaneous job!
What else ...
I love being outside and exploring new places! I love going to the beach and finding nice places to swim! Spending time with animals and friends, camping and getting arty and creative

Special dietary requirements
The property oozes potential and it was super exciting to be apart of something that was just getting started! In my short stay with Ben I got to help build “duckville” and learnt new skills in building, painting and my favourite being axel grinding. I felt like a real tradie!
