Caroline has a diverse range of experience and/or qualifications in things such as climate change, water governance, state and natural resources, social impact assessments, regional development policy and financial planning. When not working in Government, in her cider business (Brady’s Lookout Cider) or volunteering, she likes to have fun by getting out into the open spaces.
