Rachael Turner

Construction and Property
Queensland

Certificate IV in Building and Construction

After running a successful music school for 10 years, Rachael Turner decided to pursue her passion for construction and design at TAFE. A highly-motivated student, Rachael completed her course in one year. She quickly overcame the challenges of being taken seriously in a male-dominated industry and encourages other women to follow their construction dreams.
 
Rachael is now running her own design and construction company. To start a company from scratch with no contacts in the industry and have it operating successfully in such a short timeframe is an outstanding accomplishment. Rachael’s positive attitude and respect for learning means that she is constantly focused on ways to improve her skills and her business.
 
After applying for her Builders Licence this year she plans to complete a Diploma of Building and Construction within the next two years.
