Ambassador - Kimberley region, WA
Director, Brook Project Management
"Living in a remote part of the Kimberley region, the opportunity to become a Rare Birds Ambassador empowers me to engage more strongly with a broad range of women in the pastoral, agriculture, tourism, mining and general business areas. The Kimberley region has been kind to me and Rare Birds provides an opportunity for me to give back to the Kimberley by encouraging and supporting our rural and remote women and girls to do great things.
Narelle has lived and worked in Kununurra in the East Kimberley region of WA since 1995.
