We’re very excited to be launching The Female Career podcast in June this year, bringing you the career journeys of a diverse range of NZ women. 


One of our first stories is Laura Douglas. Laura grew up on a sheep and deer farm in Southland, but then spent 10 years in the corporate world both in NZ and overseas. She traded her high heels for gumboots in 2016 when she founded Real Country, a farm tour and experience business based in Queenstown. Laura is also passionate about building confidence in girls and more recently created the Southern Girl Finishing School. No embroidery or comportment classes here though!! Instead Laura helps the girls to become more confident, practical and capable by tackling unfamiliar jobs like jumpstarting a tractor. 


If you’d like to be one of the first to hear Laura’s interview when it goes live in June, sign up to The Female Career mailing list.
