“Should you ever have the good fortune to meet or work with Emma Jackson then you too will encounter the passionate, intelligent powerhouse that is tuned in and turned on by a genuine desire to holistically help and improve the lives and communities around her.”

What they said

Throughout 2021, Emma’s SHINE program worked with our disengaged female students. Emma delivers programs with compassion, understanding and professionalism.  She listens to what the investor’s priorities are and she responds and adapts carefully to the needs and desires of the learners attending.

She accommodates diverse learning styles and brings warmth and love in her guidance and teaching.  In Addition, the SHINE program also provided opportunities for mentors from Napranum community to gain further skills to support the program delivery enabling further capacity development.

I place high value on the benefits of this program for young females within the Napranum community.

What an influence Emma Jackson has made in my life.

Several years ago I signed up to walk 42km over two days in the scorching Far North Queensland heat to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention in Cape York.  I had heard of ‘Emma Jackson’, the Pom from Wolverton Station but never had the opportunity to meet her in person.  That year I struggled with every step of the walk – mentally and physically but Emma walked with me the entire way encouraging me each step, listening to me intensely and taking the time to genuinely care for which I am forever grateful.

Emma and I have formed a beautiful friendship since then which I value each and every day.  She is always there to listen, offer advice or talk.

~ Cherie Woodham, Conquer the Corrugations Participant

I have known Emma for over 20 years as a passionate and dedicated advocate for disadvantaged and underprivileged people in rural and remote sectors on Cape York.

Amongst a plethora of personal initiatives, she has committed herself through the leadership of Cape York NRM for 8 years, organising the Conquer the Corrugations Mental Health Awareness events and conducting welfare workshops from her own home.

Qualified in education and psychology, Emma is essentially a mum, wife and pastoralist who selflessly looks after those in her care and those who she thinks need her care.

Our society needs more Emmas.

~ Peter Scott, Mayor Cook Shire Council

Emma Jackson is an inspiration to many, and a natural leader with a deep-seated passion for the people of Cape York.

With her can-do attitude, Emma achieves success in all that she turns her hand to. Emma’s background in psychology, her passion for people and the land, coupled with the more recent skills around equine therapy have come together to create an incredible package that results in Emma having the capacity to support others towards an empowered, positive way of living.

~ Jocelyn Middleton, Manager Far North Mental Health, RFDS

I have had the pleasure of working with Emma now for many years and I dare say Cape York would be lost without her passion and dedication, assisting in improving lives from the kids to the adults in a very very remote area. It is not an easy task as everyone knows but she continues to strive for greatness.

~ Warren Entsch, Federal Member for Leichhardt
