Natalie Simshauser

As a rural woman (wife, mother, daughter-in-law), teacher and wellbeing coach, Natalie brings her hands on experience of all things that influence the lives of families to the table. Born and raised in South Africa, Natalie obtained her Bachelors degree at the University of Witwatersrand.

She left South Africa having met and married an Australian farmer based in Forbes, NSW. Here she was able to see first hand the issues that affect families through her employment at Centacare where she worked in a community development and counselling role, and furthermore, in her capacity as a yoga teacher. A move to Narrabri to be closer to the family farming business saw Natalie expand her interests to teach communication skills and conflict management at TAFE.

In addition to her work within the community, being married into a agribusiness family has given Natalie greater insight into the importance communication plays in business issues such as isolation, stress, financial burdens, lack of support and services, succession processes and depression.

It is this experience which has motivated Natalie to share her expertise, coaching business stakeholders in effective and positive communication.
