Barb’s Story

Barb’s family were pioneers in the sugar, timber and dairy industries in the Mackay area. She is the youngest of 9 children and was strapped to her horse from 3 years of age as she was too young to stay home alone. Her parents worked together to sustain their family on a farm with no income for many years, so there was never an option to not find a solution.

There was not time to be shown how, you learnt doing it and working it out yourself. It has taught her independence, creativity and a drive to work out how things work and how they could be improved for efficiency. Her drive is to understand how things work, why and search for ways to adapt and improve. She does not accept that there is no alternative. Working in systems confined by policies and set procedures with inefficiency and limitations she knew there could be more and a better way.

Barb’s philosophy is that things can always be better and there is always a way.
