2023: Gastro, HFM + ‘adenovirus’*

*It’s a thing. Who knew.  

Yup – if there’s anything 2023 taught me, it’s that:

Childcare comes with a unique set of ‘firsts’

I can’t do this on my own, and,

there’s a talented tribe of freaking LEGENDS I owe a billion, trillion thanks to for keeping the dream alive.

(So much so, that we’ve decided to have another baby… just to really throw the cat amongst the pigeons. Incoming Feb ’24.)

BIG, BIG LOVE TO:

Chad, Dad, Mum, Deb + Mick Harper, James McGill, Jo Winkley, Sarah Prime, Claire Harris, Gianna Grbich, Kylie Meznar, Steve Davis + Toya Crouch

…for helping me dodge (business) bullets, maintain an illusion of control (LOL), placate my perfectionism + prevent allllll the peas from falling off the proverbial plate. 

You’re the bomb-diggity + I owe my highlight reel to YOU.

Plague aside, other fun stuff included:

  • a 3-year partnership between #PlantASeedForSafety + Syngenta Australia
  • joining CSL Seqirus’s Q Fever Taskforce 
  • leading a 200+ strong farm safety flash dance
  • being named one of SA’s Top 40 Under 40 (nope not there yet, you cheeky sods) 
  • a first-of-its-kind ‘Germinators Workshop’ – helping regional ambassadors shift the safety dial from boring, reactive + negative to positive, proactive + FUN
  • being selected for the Department of Premier + Cabinet’s ForceForty
  • starring in a short, sweet + slightly ridiculous skit with (the) Tim Thompson
  • rockstar clients including John Holland, Siemens Energy UK, Nufarm, Agrifac, Ramsey Bros, Tarac, Thornby Farms, Eastbrook Farms, Amherst Livestock, the Limestone Coast Fishermen’s Co-operative + many others.

The most humbling experience of all?
Supporting Mathew + Denika from Koch Farming to navigate an Enforceable Undertaking.
A potent reminder that compassion, curiosity + critical risk should always come first… above and beyond box-ticking, bureaucracy + ‘compliance’.
Stay cool Santiago, Merry Christmas + have a FABULOUS New Year!
