Volunteer of the Month – December 2018: Jess

1. What is your background (profession/ workplace/ training)?

Hi, I’m Jess. I am a physiotherapist and am also currently undertaking a Masters in Teaching.

2. What inspired you to become a Water Well volunteer?

I was inspired to be a volunteer at The Water Well Project to share my skills within my community.

3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.

One of my favourite experiences was seeing a Korean community and their national exercise program.

4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?

I found being open to hearing the participants’ lifestyle and knowledge helped me learn more about how to cater my information and skills to their learning. I recommend this opportunity to any health professional seeking to try a rewarding experience helping those in our community keen to learn more and improve their own health.
