Our People. Their Stories

Chelsea’s Story

Dairy farm manager and Dairy Women’s Network Regional Leader Chelsea Smith from the King Country has turned a personal challenge that blindsided her into a positive life changing journey.

About to give up dairy farming, she took some time off to go travelling overseas instead before returning to take up a role overseeing four farming operations near Otorohanga in the Central North Island.

She then she won the opportunity through Dairy Women’s Network to participate in The Edge, a unique leadership programme provided by The Outward Bound Trust with support from New Zealand’s largest network of Chartered Accounting firms, NZ CA.

Chelsea and her team feature as the fifth episode in our visual story telling project, OUR PEOPLE. THEIR STORIES.
