Kym has worked for nearly two decades in Public Health, food security and nutrition in Australia and internationally. This has included roles with Red Cross, international NGO’s and the United Nations across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific in emergencies, development and conflict settings.  In Tassie she spent some years teaching at UTas, was a Director on the Board with Permaculture Australia, and volunteered with Tassievore Eat Local Challenge & Permblitz Tasmania. She has completed a PDC with Milkwood, and Permaculture Teacher training with Rowe Morrow.

This year she returned from two years living in Kuala Lumpur where she worked on emergency health and nutrition projects across the Asia Pacific region and is loving the cooler weather and seasons of Tassie! You are now likely to find her in the veggie garden, visiting markets, making cheese and ferments, and enjoying a glass of Tassie white with her partner, two dogs and chickens in the West Tamar region.

In addition to Interim President, Kym is the contact person for Tamar/Launceston locals group email:
