Samantha is passionate about women being able to run their business no matter their location. She is the founder of The Rural Compass, a podcast interviewing and sharing the inspiring stories of rural business women across the country. The Rural Compass has allowed her to create an extensive network and community of like-minded rural women.
Samantha will use the Westpac bursary to further develop a nationwide online directory for all rural, regional and remote businesses. The easy to list directory will allow businesses to list for free while also pointing people in the direction of purchasing and hiring from rural businesses.
