Joined Impro Melbourne: 2016
Jess is Risk Analyst by day and an enthusiastic hobbyist by night, her foray into hobbies has gone from Nail Art, playing the Ukulele and Calligraphy. Finally upon the sage advice given in Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants; Jess enrolled into to her first Spontaneity class back in 2011. Ever since then Jess has been living and breathing Impro, and can’t imagine a time where she didn’t recite the words ‘yes and…’ on a daily basis.
