Jessica lives in Woodvale with her husband Siljan and their two kids. She grew up in Beldon and Joondalup where she attended Eddystone Primary School and Sacred Heart College.
As a mum with a young daughter at primary school Jessica values the contribution education makes to our kid’s future and now being on the school board and P&F of that school understands the pressures and demands on the education system in today’s changing world.
Prior to entering Parliament Jessica was a strategic project town planner at the City of Wanneroo, while also raising her young family.
Jessica has always been committed to her community and served as the President of the Landsdale Residents Association where she campaigned successfully for a number of community projects, including grants to hold community ‘Get to know your neighbour’ days.
Jessica is no stranger to political life - her father Tony O’Gorman served as the Labor Member for Joondalup from 2001 – 2013.
