Professionally, Jon has been employed in a variety of backgrounds, from monitoring of Waste Facilities, UPSS and On-Site Wastewater Management Systems to facilitating the remediation and validation of future State Significant Development and Infrastructure sites.
Throughout his undergraduate education Jon has been accredited with a number of leadership roles in environmental programs including as group leader of the 2014 Community Outreach Program, West Timor.
