Career Summary

Biography

Jessica is a dynamic, capable individual with a wealth of experience in project management, facilities management and the field of simulation. Originating in the healthcare scene, Jessica then moved to the simulation industry in healthcare education. She is an excellent communicator, team manager and is able to cast vision for large events and general curricular activity.

A critical thinker, Jessica is able to consider issues at hand and explore innovative ways to achieve goals and maximise productivity despite complexities. Her expertise in simulation is as diverse as it is comprehensive; project manager, lead educator, theorist, consultant to simulation, technical officer and building manager – Jessica has done them all. Jessica has a developed understanding of simulation as a whole, becoming recognised as an expert in her field. Her recent work with the Australian Society for Simulation in Healthcare and the SimHealth Organising Committee have enabled her to have a good grasp of  current issues in simulation.

Interests in research include Simulated Patient Methodology (including development of the Simulated Patient Rating Tool ©), learner engagement and realism. Currently enrolled in a Doctorate of Philosophy, Jessica is exploring how authenticity impacts learner engagement. For this research she has already won a research award (Best Works in Progress at SimHealth 2015) and is building capacity and traction on this topic.

Her current role encompasses the broader New England North West region of New South Wales, collaborating with Local Health Districts to improve and support quality nursing placements. Her areas of research within this capacity are exploring the value of nursing support in rural health placement.
