Natasha’s Blossoming Career

Natasha Palmer was halfway through a Certificate IV in Agriculture when she applied for the Long Tan Bursary in 2006. AVCAT caught up with Natasha via LinkedIn last month.

‘Since the receipt of the AVCAT Long Tan Bursary in 2007, I completed my Certificate IV in Agriculture at Tocal Agricultural College, and went on to complete a Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management, Farm Management and Agribusiness at Charles Sturt University.’

After finishing her studies Natasha secured a competitive graduate position as an Agribusiness Analyst at the National Bank of Australia (NAB). Through NAB she was fortunate to experience working in different locations across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, first as an analyst and then as an Agribusiness Manager.

Today, Natasha is further using her education, skills and experience in the role of Business Manager with an agricultural business that supplies native Australian and South African cut flowers to domestic and international markets.

Natasha has had a busy and fulfilling decade since receiving her Long Tan Bursary as a TAFE student, she says, ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank AVCAT and the Long Tan Bursary for choosing me as a recipient of the scholarship’.
