Jess Rees - Warramunga and Kamiliaroi WOmen of both Tennant Creek and Mungindi Also joining WIC from the Illawarra Aboriginal Medical Service is Jess Rees, our new Indigenous Student Success Advisor. Jess’s role at WIC is to guide students through their academic career, being there not just to listen, but provide action however she can in helping them with their success. One of the ways she does this by developing Strength & Needs Snapshots with students to identify what supports they might need as they study. Jess says that it’s great to be in a fresh and supportive new team and that it’s good to join the team after having formerly been a student here at UOW.
