Enthusiastic Assistant Town Planner at Pure Town Planning
Jess studied at The University of Birmingham and gained a MSci (Hons) degree in Geography. During this time, she gained valuable experience working with a built environment design organisation, where she familiarised herself with aspects of good design practice and place-making. Prior to Pure Town Planning, Jess carried out work with a planning consultancy in Wiltshire, researching into planning history, planning policy and providing an assessment on various residential and mixed-used urban developments. Alongside work Jess is currently studying for a MSc in Urban Planning at University of the West of England, with the ambition to become a Chartered Planner.
Away from the world of planning, Jess loves to travel and recently came back from a 6-week adventure in South-East Asia. Running is Jess’ second passion, she completed the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2015 and enjoys taking part in the 5k Salisbury parkrun each Saturday with her embarrassingly yappy Border Terrier. Another thing most people are unaware of is that she plays the saxophone, piano and clarinet.
