This week we continue our focus on sustainability with an interview with Tessa Jakszewicz, CEO of Landcare Australia.

Kendi Burness-Cowan talks to Tessa about her childhood, education and her life-changing trip to Australia where she instantly fell in love with the landscape.
Early on Tessa learned the value of working in a field that she is truly passionate about. This guided her career path towards roles with an environmental focus. Her goals for the future are two fold; the physical outcomes and the community engagement.

Tessa also works hard to encourage people to make our great Australian landscape better and to help preserve where our food and water comes from.
