Our People

Pat Macauley - Otago Rural Support TrustPat Macaulay

Coordinator

Pat was brought up on a sheep farm in the hills of West Otago. Pat's main career after leaving school was cooking for Dad and the boys, she then went to work for an advertising agency in Dunedin and moved into media planning. Marriage in the early 70's led her to the Strath Taieri on a sheep and beef property where farming in drought was a regular occurrence. Pat's background in the agriculture industry, and a National Diploma in Agribusiness Management have enabled Pat to assist and support Rural families in times of need.
