Jessica Miller

Senior Marketing & Communications Officer, Queensland Rural & Industry Development Authority (QRIDA)

 

Past student and graduate of 2014, Jessica Miller is making a difference in rural, regional, and remote Queensland one word at a time.

With a background deeply rooted in agriculture, Jessica’s career has been driven by a passion for bridging the gap between rural communities and essential resources.

As Senior Marketing and Communications Officer at the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA), Jessica’s role takes her across Queensland to share the stories of clients who have benefitted from the financial support of QRIDA, in particular the positive impacts it is having on Queensland agricultural businesses.

“Growing up on property, ag has always been a passion of mine and I knew that I wanted a career that was connected to the ag industry.

“Towards the end of high school, I started gravitating more and more towards a career in the creative industry, in particular writing and I was determined to become the next Pip Courtney from Landline,” she said.

“At the end of my university degree I was really lucky to land a Marketing and Communications Assistant job at QRIDA and enjoyed the work the organisation was doing to support producers and five years later I’m still here!”

 

Jessica’s role also entails working on strategic campaigns aimed at promoting QRIDA's various financial assistance programs and resources available to primary producers, businesses, and non-profit organisations, especially after disasters strike.

Beyond her contributions within QRIDA, Jessica's dedication to fostering connections and driving positive change extends to her involvement with the Queensland Rural Regional and Remote Women’s Network (QRRRWN).

 

As a newly appointed Board member, Jessica brings with her a wealth of experience and insight from years of working closely with rural, regional and remote communities. In this capacity, she is committed to amplifying the voices of rural women and championing their unique perspectives and contributions to the agricultural sector.

“Joining the QRRRWN Board is a tremendous honour and a privilege. I’m looking forward to voicing the stories and contributions of rural women, and I’m excited to be working alongside my fellow board members to drive positive change and empower our rural communities,” she said.

 

Back in her TCC days, Jessica was always a dedicated and passionate student being involved in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. In her senior year, Jessica was the recipient of the John and Barbara Pearson Trophy and Bursary for Most Outstanding College Representative.
