My name is Nola Turner-Jensen; I am Budthurung Moiety, Murie of the Galare Tribe of the Wiradjuri Australian nation.
I am an Aboriginal social worker, published children’s author and sociologist researcher with over 20 years’ experience. I have led a six-year comparative research study. My team included both Indigenous and Australian Psychologists, Social workers, Educators, Elders and Cultural Experts. These discoveries will prove that there are two Polar Opposite Instinctive Belief System Cultures in Australia at the moment. These Belief Systems have created the invisible barriers to Indigenous and Australian peoples collaborating with respect, honour and trust.
In 2017 I was chosen in the top 100 women in the Inspirational Rare Birds program for Entrepreneurial business women.
I am an accomplished Indigenous Business Entrepreneur, researcher and writer. I have four published children’s books thus far.
As Principal Director and founder, I am the content writer for Crackerjack Education the leading Indigenous run company of its type in the world. In this role, I have written & designed over 100 interactive digital resources, e-Books, games and activities based on Ancient Australia and how the places, animals and living landscapes were honoured by Indigenous people.
Myself and three others were instrumental in establishing the first ever Indigenous Run Chamber of Commerce in Australia in 2006.
In 2013 I was chosen by Oxfam as 1 of 60 Indigenous women leaders across Australia to attend the Straight Talk convention in Canberra.
In 2014, Crackerjack Education was a finalist in the Business section of the Human Rights awards.
