She is a member of the NBPSA (Neurobehavioural Paediatric Society of Australasia) and attends WAADF (WA Autism Diagnostician Forum) meetings. She is a director on the board of Ngala.
Dr Jessy is passionate about looking after the whole child. She is a strong Advocate for children and supporting parents with navigating schools as well as providing guidance and support for what is an evolving space with NDIS.
She believes in the importance of the “happy child” and its role in a child reaching his or her full potential. Part of striving for this goal involves evaluating a child’s strengths and difficulties.
Dr Jessy will be accepting referrals for children in the 0-10 year age group who are not an active case for CPFS (Child Protection and Family services) as these children have the Psychosocial complexity that would be better managed at another service.
Outside of work, Dr Jessy is actively involved in her children’s school and extra-curricular interests. She enjoys family time, keeping fit and travel when this is possible.
