Hi, I'm Jean

I make safety simple.

I am a Charters Towers local born and bred. I grew up on a cattle station outside of Charters Towers and I have been involved in agriculture in some capacity for my entire life. I have two sons who currently attend school in Charters Towers and want to be in the rural industry when they grow up. I have run rural businesses myself and know the struggle of trying to juggle business, work, family, and life.

Your success is my business

I consider myself a Solution Specialist and Regional Business Champion. I am devoted to helping others achieve success. Business can be stressful. It is easy to lose the passion you once had for your business in the everyday hum drum grind. I'm passionate about using my business, finance, training, and safety skills to help business owners and managers simplify, streamline, and organise their operations.

I’ll work with you to create a customised plan of action for yourself and your organisation. Get in touch to learn more about how I can help you.

Industry Experience

I have over 20 years of experience in the agricultural industry. This experience has been primarily in the grazing industry. I have worked as:

  • a general stationhand,
  • road train driver,
  • helicopter pilot,
  • machinery operator,
  • and office manager.

These positions have contributed to my knowledge and experience of heavy vehicle, transport, earth moving, aviation, and agricultural businesses. 

Practical Safety Experience

I have helped multiple businesses develop, write, and implement ISO45001 compliant safety systems.

I have delivered safety talks and workshops to industry leaders and I have created a safety compliance course for agricultural managers. Creating this course required extensive research of WHS legislation, relevant Australian Standards, Codes of Practice, and relevant guidance material for all states and territories of Australia.

I have conducted site inspections and internal accident investigations.

  • Bachelor of Occupational Health and Safety minoring in Accident Forensics.
  • Diploma of Agriculture
  • Diploma of Agribusines
  • Diploma of Financial Planning
  • Certificate IV Accounting and Bookkeeping
  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

Unique Skills

A combination of hands-on skills and extensive experience in the agricultural industry and a tertiary education in Workplace Health and Safety affords me the unique ability to combine practical solutions that work on the ground with corporate governance that meets compliance requirements.

  • Report writing skills.
  • Team building and team management skills.
  • Leadership coaching experience.
  • Conflict management experience.
  • Adept at engaging and promoting individuals in team environments.
