Tammy lives at Narrandera with her partner and young daughter. A small-scale beef farmer and agricultural contracting partner, she also works for Riverina Local Land Services and is a Councillor for Narrandera Shire.
Tammy’s Rural Women’s Award project, Riverina Women’s Connect Network, will bring together women, businesses and services through face-to-face networking events, a website and business directory, and online forums. In establishing the new network Tammy hopes to facilitate leadership opportunities, social connectivity and stimulate the regional economy.
The network will provide opportunities for people and services to share information and resources and ensure rural people know where to find the support they need when tackling tough times.
Members of Riverina Women’s Connect Network will be encouraged to take up leadership opportunities to co-host gatherings and events on a quarterly basis, either in their town or on farms, to give women greater confidence. Tammy hopes that by encouraging and supporting women to take on these roles, it will build their confidence and leadership capability.
