About

Jeanette McPetrie

Holistic Personal and Business Coach
Workshop Facilitator
Inspirational Speaker


Jeanette is originally from Central West NSW, and she grew up on the land, with the country life in her blood. Starting her career as a Physical Education and Health Teacher in Melbourne, the call of the land was too strong and later went back to the family farms.  

Whilst working for the family partnership she also fitted in work as a technical officer for Trangie Agricultural Research Station and was the stock assistant with Pitt Son & Bryant Ltd Stock & Station Agent, Warren NSW.

Finally, in 1998 purchased her own agricultural property, running cattle, sheep and Lucerne enterprises following the dream and passion of working the land.  It was during this time, that she also gained a wealth of knowledge in a cross section of work experiences to bring in the extra capital to create a well maintained and sustainable property.

Her working life has included casual teaching, Services & Programs Officer, Support Worker for NGO’s, Consumer Advocate and Educational Facilitator and Centrelink Manager/Agent - each contributing to the development of her skills and her passion for helping others achieve their goal and desires.
