'A Seat at the Table' Project

Hi! I’m Jess and I’ve joined the Assist team as an Event Coordinator for the “A Seat At The Table” project.
 
Visual description: I’m 5ft 8, have brown hair and wear big square clear glasses like those ones you used to wear in science class. You’ll often see me in jeans and a t shirt and a comfy pair of trainers. 
 
I have a degree in Psychology from Leeds Beckett University. My background is community development, delivering training, volunteer management, fundraising and running events etc. I currently work as a community connector for my day job so it’s safe to say I’m a people person and love a good chin wag! 
 
Helping to elevate women’s voices is very important to me and I have great hope that this project will empower women to strive for leadership roles and break the glass ceiling.
 
In my spare time I love to be by the sea and walk along the beach barefoot, bake the only thing I know how; good old sprinkle cake! Volunteering is invaluable to me and most recently I’ve started helping out at a local allotment with my sister.
