My role in the department
I have been a development Officer with DPIRD since 2014. Both of the projects I work on are aimed at assisting grain growers make the best variety and agronomic decisions for their environment and farming system. I have produced a range of publications and extension material, including the Sowing Guides for wheat and barley. Other material I work on includes factsheets, the MyCrop app and a number of other web based tools and information pages.
I really enjoy knowing that the work I do helps growers make better decisions and in turn, contributes to a more profitable grains sector.
Originally from Perth, I began my studies in agribusiness in Western Australia’s grainbelt and haven’t left since!
My experience includes working at the CBH Group, the Shire of Northam, AGT and Wheatbelt NRM. This has given me a broad range of skills and understanding of the requirements of grain growers and rural communities.
