Founder and CEO
Founder of LeaderLife, Joh oozes the kind of warmth, sincerity and compassion that is rarely seen in the business world.
Yet it is exactly these qualities, matched with her cheeky sense of humour and sheer determination that has seen her kick both personal and professional goals. Joh started her career as a paediatric speech pathologist before taking her passion for kids into the community services field. It was here that she realised her passion was to help grow communities and be part of a great village that ultimately helps kids live their best life.
After identifying greater opportunities in the not for profit sector, and having a desire to fill what she saw as a massive gap in Dubbo’s social fabric, LeaderLife was born. The goal? To fill the gap with sincere, meaningful holistic long-term support for kids who have been caught in the crossfire of some of the most complex social issues anyone could face.
Joh and her team compassionately look beyond the damage and see the kids for what they are; smart, resilient young people who just need someone to help them grow.
Over her years of learning, Joh stumbled across the importance of balance, always looking at the big picture and getting the little things right. She brings this philosophy of being holistic and keeping it simple to LeaderLife, her beef farming enterprise with her husband and raising her two wild bush boys; all with the serenity, humility and humour so often unique to rural women.
