BORN and bred in the bush Genevieve grew up on a sheep property at The Gums.
She has always had a passion for words and made a successful career combining her love of writing with her commitment to agriculture – spending the majority of her journalistic career working as a rural reporter for Queensland Country Life.
She has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southern Queensland majoring in Journalism and Literature.
In 2006 she saw an opportunity to take on new challenges accepting the role of State marketing manager for Queensland and the Northern Territory with Rabobank. However, Genevieve maintained her link with the rural media sector joining the Queensland Rural Press Club committee in 2006.
The Rural Press Club (Qld) is an independent non-profit networking group that aims to raise the profile of rural industry and agribusiness in Queensland.
In 2008 Genevieve was elected president and worked tirelessly to introduce a number of key initiatives which helped grow and promote the club.
This year her work with agriculture journalism was recognised when she received life membership from the Rural Press Club making her only the seventh person in the club's 40 year history to achieve this accolade. Genevieve currently holds the position of vice president for the Australian Council of Agricultural Journalists.
