About Vanessa

Vanessa is a resident of Hepburn Shire and has lived in regional Victoria since 2018. She is an IT professional with over 20 years of experience.  She has worked in business administration, IT Support, Graphic design, hospitality management, Governance and Process Improvement, Project Management, Business Analysis and IT and Business Training. 

She is often described as highly analytical, methodical and structured yet  paradoxically she is creative, intuitive and empathetic. At  first you may not think these are skills and qualities that usually mesh, but this is a perfect combination for developing creative and effective strategies that are both flexible and scale-able, while also being able to get the job done and delivered.    

Her most rewarding roles were with community service based organisations and she has worked with Qld Health, Royal Flying Doctors and Brisbane City Council during her Career.   While enjoying her technology based management/office career she opened and operated Jett Espresso with her partner in 2009.  Jett was popular local community cafe in Grange, a North Brisbane Suburb, which operated successfully for 4 years. 

She is loves to pursue education and professional development.  Having a wealth of qualifications in technology and business and having moved to Hepburn, the Day spa capital of Australia, she has also almost completed a Diploma of Beauty and Spa.  She is also working with some local accommodation and hospitality businesses so she can developing a thorough understanding the local communities primary tourism industries. 

Multi-skilled and happy to work hard and hands on, after moving to Regional Victoria in 2018, she has been helping family members finish building their house.  This is not her first building project, and she continues provide hands on building, plastering, painting, tiling and of course interior design support during the project. 

She has loved the experience of contributing to the  local community, helping the Castlemaine repair cafe to set up their website and facebook page, and she is a technology mentor with the BeConnected Project in the Goldfields shire and now also in Hepburn.

Never having felt at home in the city, and a growing love and passion for that country Australian landscape, she knew it was time for change, packed up and drove to Avoka.    Before this, you could often find Vanessa taking a walk through the botanical gardens, shoes off and feet on the grass for that intuitive need to personally reconnect body with earth.    Durring the 16-1800kml drive she was so inspired by changing landscape and fauna she wanted to capture and share the views that made her happy and started to develop a love and skill in photography.
