My career in logistics started around 20 years ago, working in the Shipping industry in Western Australia with iron ore and crude oil. A move to Melbourne then introduced me to container and cruise ships. Shortly after the birth of our daughter my family and I moved back to our home state of South Australia and settled in the Barossa Valley. I’ve been working in the wine industry for 10 years in the Barossa. It’s a great industry to work in – both the wine and the people, are amazing!
