When faced with the choice of pursuing a career in Professional Women’s Cricket or teaching, Kylie Jones’ passion for education won.

Not one to do things in the traditional order, Kylie waited until after university and the start of her teaching career to take a gap year, taking on the role of a Governess on Helens Springs Station in the Northern Territory. Little did she know, that as it does for so many others, that choice would change the trajectory of her life.

In this episode, Kylie shares the story of how after her time as a Governess she came to realise that the structure of mainstream schooling wasn’t the right fit for her, and found herself back in the outback, launching a not-for-profit organisation from scratch.
