Charmayne’s early days were with her father on commercial fishing boats where she learned the age old art of net making. Here she also learnt the basic of the fishing industry and its ups and downs.
From there Charmayne had a change of direction and worked in one of Sydney’s most prestigious restaurants on the Hawkesbury River where she learnt how to work in the fast paced food industry.
After a period in hospitality Charmayne entered the aquaculture industry where she specialised in oysters. She went on to control the quality and grading for local and export markets.
It was back to the fishing industry after meeting Wayne who she later married. Charmayne designed and manufactured the new technology in nets for their ecologically sustainable fishing operations.
She then managed their wholesale and retail seafood outlets and was instrumental in the co-development of new technologies for both the catching and processing sectors.
Having established herself in management and manufacturing operations she took over the production management for Wayne’s odour control business. Here she controlled all manufacturing and logistics for both domestic and export markets.
