Rebel describes herself as a human agronomist with a mission to bloom where she is planted. She is passionate about connecting rural women and is both inspiring to, and inspired by, them. In 2015 Rebel launched THE Rural Woman – an online community offering programs, training and support.
In 2018 THE Seed Scheme was introduced, a project to enable 700 women-led online micro-enterprises in rural and regional Australia through strategic and aligned partnerships with business, government and philanthropists.
Rebel is many things – mentor, speaker, coach, consultant; all borne from her natural gift of communication and her belief in personal responsibility.
