Allan has an agricultural science degree from Melbourne University as well as graduate diplomas in applied finance and financial planning.

        Donna Gibson
        Regional Extension Officer

        Donna has previously worked with Agriculture Victoria as a technical officer in dairy soils and nutrient research and as a milk supply officer for milk processors.

          Leah Maslen
          Regional Extension Officer

          As GippsDairy's Dairy Workforce Coordinator, Leah knows first-hand how valuable her job can be.

          During almost 20 years as a Westbury dairy farmer, Leah sometimes struggled to navigate her way through the farm employment maze. In hindsight, having a specialist Dairy Workforce Coordinator would have made her farm employment processes far less time consuming and stressful.

          Leah believes her dairy experience, including share farming, leasing and hiring employees for a 400-cow farm, will help her assist farmers in developing up-to-date employment practices.

            GippsDairy
            Katherine Vaughan
            Administration Officer

            Katherine assists the GippsDairy Extension Officers with their preparation and coordination of events. She is responsible for database management and various aspects of office administration.

            Katherine’s background in business development, client service and event management is complimentary to this role.

              GippsDairy
              Sarah Cornell
              Regional Extension Officer

              Sarah Cornell has seen the dairy industry from multiple viewpoints.

              Sarah looks after workforce development and farm safety, while also coordinating the Gippsland Young Dairy Network.

              In her role as YDN coordinator, Sarah wants to keep the program active and growing, to enable members to access more extension activities and help them reach their career goals.

                Regional Extension Officer
                Libby has a background in animal health, business management and training. In managing GippsDairy's Women in Dairy discussion groups, Libby is looking to build on the strong existing networks — whether that is connecting women on farms socially to discuss work-life balance or mental health or doing a farm walk to look at pastures and different systems.
