Natalie is a passionate co-operative leader and farmer from the Western Australian wheat belt. In 2020 Natalie was one of eight industry mentors selected to be a Co-operative Farming Champion, helping deliver support and education on the co-operative business model to farmers, fishers and foresters across Australia.

Natalie joins co-operative colleagues from across the Asia-Pacific Board, elected today at the ICA A-P Congress in Seoul, who will serve a four-year term. Natalie is the first Australian elected to the regional board. Natalie’s presence on the board will ensure a strong Australian voice on co-operative matters across Asia-Pacific as well as the chance to open up more conversations around research, education and trade between our neighbours.
