After recently presenting the Drive show on Mix 104.9 in Darwin, she now works by day as Online Content Manager for the same major radio network, overseeing digital for 15 radio stations in VIC/SA, across Geelong, Ballarat, Mildura, Bendigo, Murray Bridge, Riverland, Spencer Gulf and Eyre Peninsula.
In her early 20’s, some well-timed career advice from Sir Richard Branson saw Jac change direction and dive head first into her passion for burlesque. She went on to produce high profile events around the world including Miss Burlesque International, The Burlesque Ball and The Ruby Revue, as well as bespoke events and entertainment for high-end clients such as the MoMA New York, Pacha Moscow, and was Tour Manager for the controversial Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort. This was Jac’s first empire; it was here that she began to amass her now huge social media following of more than 30,000 Facebook fans and 30,000 Twitter followers.
She later had an idea for a fresh approach to networking. The concept was simple: Attract the right women, put them in the right space, and allow them to connect socially. If they hit it off, they would find a way to work together. She called it Business In Heels and after three events was approached to license the event to another producer in Melbourne.
Less than two years later there were over 50 branches franchised across Australia, New Zealand, Spain, United States, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Nepal, Canada and Thailand.
So, after selling Business in Heels and becoming engaged to her farmer in December 2014, followed her childhood dream of finally working in radio – and hasn’t looked back, loving her current role’s exciting integration of radio, digital and mentoring announcers and sales teams
