Jessica was born and has lived in Minehead. Jessica attended Taunton School due to struggling academically in main stream school and this allowed her to pass her GCSE’s thanks to their help and support. She then went on to study Agriculture at the Royal Agriculture University due to her passion for food and how it is produced, and graduated with a first class degree. During her time at university Jessica worked a lot with children on farms introducing them to how their food is produced and opening up their minds to new academic possibilities. Jessica is really looking forward to being able to give the students at The Grange the help and support she received whilst at Taunton and being part of introducing an awareness and appreciation for the outdoors and where their food comes from.
