Jackie commenced as General Manager of Leeton Shire Council in August 2015. Jackie came to the Riverina from Tamworth where she held the position of Director Planning and Community Services.
Her formal qualifications are in natural resource management (BSc Forestry/Conservation) and a Masters in Environmental Education.
Prior to moving to Australia from NZ in 2012, Jackie was herself a councillor for 8 years with Invercargill City Council, including serving as Deputy Mayor in her final term. She considers this to have been an excellent opportunity to understand the important interface played by a GM between the elected Council and the administration staff.
Jackie is strongly focussed on results and making sure these are communicated openly both internally with staff/councillors and externally with Leeton Shire residents. She works very closely with Council's Communications, Corporate Planning and Economic Development staff.
Jackie and her husband, Graeme, love living in Leeton and are impressed by the area's agricultural prowess - from primary production through to value adding manufacturing industries. They have two adult children who visit from time to time.
