Tell your story- Jaqui O’Donohoe

 

It’s my favourite time in my blog schedule, when I shine a light on my incredible clients by way of my The Proust Questionnaire series. Today we have fabulous Jaq O’Donohoe. Jaq works in a high level corporate role which is so clever I don’t actually know what she does. She’s also an incredible writer and loves little more than sending me text messages from the tops of mountain ridges which give me anxiety.

What is your story?

I  live a life of adventure. After joining the WA Police Force at only 19yrs old I now balance a career in the corporate world with running ultra-marathons or solo thru hiking in the bush. I am inspired by my late Dad’s adventures. Dad was a submariner with the Royal Australian Navy and his death at the age of 59yrs led me to put pen to paper and write our story, recently releasing my book Reflections through the Periscope. A love letter to Dad.

I am passionate about leading and developing in the community. I am an active member of Rotary and currently the President Elect 21/22 for my club as well as an active member in my local women’s cricket club. My goal is to inspire a little adventure in all of us.

What is your motto?

Life is an adventure. Live it.
