As part of the original Limestone Coast Drug Action Team, Jennie played an integral role in the beginnings of SMLC, watching the organisation grow from a ‘back room at council’ to an organisation with a significant community presence.

Jennie taught at Tenison Woods College, becoming the facility’s Director of Wellbeing before taking on the Assistant Principal role prior to her retirement in 2021.

Jennie taught across three different countries, including India, Somalia and Saudi Arabia, working for international education organisations and the US State Department and has also worked with long-term unemployed adults assisting them to become job-ready.

Jennie’s significant educational skillset is balanced by a desire to engage in challenging and purposeful work which holds strong benefit to the community and wider region.
