Jenny joined Lucerne Australia in mid-May 2016 and is based on a property just outside Keith.

Her career has been centred on people – radio broadcasting, organisation, apprenticeship monitoring, community development, parliamentary liaison - dealing with people with a large range of issues and priorities. She is reliable, highly organised, able to work as a team member or independently as needs dictate and above all, discreet in business matters.

Jenny was raised on a grain and contract harvesting enterprise and has a good understanding of rural issues. One of her roles in radio was as a rural reporter, so she has a breadth of understanding of the agri-political scene. She has also been a media adviser to The Hon Barnaby Joyce MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources.

She also has a good understanding of how the lucerne seed industry operates and its importance to both this region and the wider areas of Australia. 

Jenny is passionate about agriculture and looking forward to her role and meeting members and stakeholders.
