    Jaci is sharing her inspiring story of "life taking you full circle, from South Gippsland to the world and back and from media to cooking and back to media".  

    Founder of Jacican Cooking and Food Studio

    Jaci grew up on a dairy farm in South Gippsland outside the town of Loch. As a young girl, her time was spent reading the cookbooks that her mother kept in the bottom kitchen draw. She was always looking for a new recipe to try, a new food idea spending many childhood weekends making rainbow cakes with as many colours as possible. Not much has changed - have you seen her IG feed - she is still searching for recipes that she can cook using what she has on hand or is growing in her kitchen garden.

    At the age of 16, she announced that she wanted to leave the farm and travel the world. She believed that there was a career for her in television that combined both sports and being technical. There was, as a broadcast engineer working in outside broadcasts for Australian television.

    As all 16 years old’s, 30 seemed a long way away. After a career, she already knew that she would move back to Gippsland to grow vegetables and cook. Fast forward 20 years, and Jaci returned to Gippsland to start Jacican Cooking and Food Studio in Mirboo North to follow her passion for growing food and cooking.

    Before returning to Gippsland, Jaci re-trained as a Chef (Cert 3 in Commercial cookery, William Angliss Institute of Tafe), worked in catering, hotels, and small businesses, both in Melbourne and Gippsland, before starting Jacican in 2012. Her small business journey led her to graduate with a Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Monash University).

    Undertaking a Graduate Diploma in Journalism (RMIT), Jaci has found life has brought her full circle. The skills she has gained through life has led to her combining her love of all thing’s food and Gippsland, with her initial passion, media.

    Founder of Train with Jess Harle

    About Jess: Based on the coast in beautiful South Gippsland, Victoria, I am an Intuitive Lifestyle coach with a holistic approach to living. I hold over 18 accredited qualifications in coaching, health, beauty and crystal healing, I work with clients all over Australia, New Zealand, the U.S and Canada. 

    A driven dreamer, I spent much of my early career as a successful business owner, using my creative innovative passion to build a unique salon offering services that would help my clients look and feel their best. 

    Alongside motherhood, I spent my 20s trekking a journey of self-discovery, determined to be the best version of myself, from the inside out.

    Whilst I love the hair industry, my passion in life is helping others to grow into themselves and really enjoy their life.

    My programs use the tools and skills that I myself use to live a life that I love. My programs are full of my passion and are designed to get results. 

    If you feel like you don't know who you are or where you're at - I can help you find some clarity. 

    If you feel a bit stuck, and aren't sure where to go next - I can help you find ways to grow. 

    If you're ready for the next step in your life - let me help you launch your business.

    Let me walk beside you as you create a life you may never even thought was possible. 

    It's time to decide whether it will be one day, or if today is day one.
