About Me - My Biography
I am the Creative Director of La Robe de Chambre Australia, which is a role that has allowed me to realise the creative part of my personality.
I have worked in many areas of mental health, health and safety and injury management for the past 14 years not only in Tasmania, but also Perth, Sydney and the Northern Territory. These varied roles often gave me opportunities to collaborate with health professionals at all levels to achieve the best outcome for clients and customers.
I’ve also managed the family farms and gained valuable business skills during those years. However I felt it was time for a change of direction and that it was time to explore my creative side, and so I started developing my skills as a designer. I’ve always had aspirations to design a fashion product but it wasn’t until last year that I had the time to really think about what that product might be.
So at the beginning of this year I started researching the products in the fashion world to find out what garment in particular could be created to align with the modern woman. As a result I came up with the label La Robe de Chambre.
I have gained much of my business acumen in the agricultural industry. However, I have recently increased by business knowledge through the process of designing and producing a fashion product. To increase my skills in this industry I have researched many aspects of the current global fashion industry and gained advice and knowledge from the product wholesalers.
This has been a collaborative process which has offered many insights into why sustainable fashion is so important.
According to my research “In 2014, 10.46 million tons of textile waste was generated and sent to landfill”.
I am very passionate about the care and wellbeing of my family, but more recently I have become increasingly keen to make sure my product doesn’t have a negative impact on the planet.
My interests include staying active, riding, reading and keeping in touch with family and friends. I always want to include learning as much as I can about the things I need to, as an interest.. I don’t like being bored!
How I Can Help Other Members
I hope I can be a support in many ways to other members, not just through my business. I have many years of health care experience, from working in harsh environments in Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory, to working in 5 star hotels as the health and safety manager in Sydney. So without being specific, I hope that I will get opportunities to provide help and support to other members whenever possible.
