Affinity with rural industries:

I have worked with farmers as a psychologist prior to becoming a mediator for 20 years in Australia. I am also
a solicitor in the Australian Government. When growing up I spent most of my school holidays at the family owned

I completed training in negotiation at the Harvard Law School in 2009. In addition I am also an accredited

accredited facilitator that combines a strong academic postgraduate background (in law, business
