She has worked extensively with Landcare throughout Queensland and NSW, with various roles in facilitating, project management, grant writing and mentoring. Tamara is working with a variety of NSW based agricultural businesses to help them develop personalised, drought resilience focused business plans under a Future Drought Fund initiative.
Tamara grew up on a sheep and cropping property near Condobolin in Central West NSW, studied Natural Resource Management and completed a Masters in Agriculture, both at UNE Armidale.
Tamara began her journey with RCS in 2005 and has worked in numerous capacities including as an advisor and trainer. Throughout her time with RCS, she has been an ExecutiveLink® facilitator, ProfitProbe® (now part of FarmEye) analyser and, more recently, an RCS coach. The businesses she’s worked in have ranged greatly in structure, enterprise mix and size. She has also worked with Local Land Services as the Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator and has a part-time role as an Engagement Officer with ANU Sustainable Farms.
This breadth of experience both personally on farm, with the businesses she works with and within communities has been instrumental in driving her passion for supporting businesses, and those that are in it, on their own growth journeys.
