Leanne Drew #12minconvos with Engel Jones

Leanne Drew…

has been a Dump Truck, water cart, grader and loader Operator in the mines for 13 years. 

At first working on a crew of 60 men and 2 women was challenging and she struggled to comprehend how to drive a truck and deal with crew culture. Finally, it all began to click, and she chose to continue her mining career.

As a Nanna heading towards retirement, she began to speak of her experiences, why she chose to keep going and strategies for others who may also find it challenging. “Mad Mumzie” the brand was born. 

A blog led to writing for Shift Miner magazine and starting a podcast called “Beers with A Miner.” Interview and solo episodes with stories, tips and strategies from past and present miners as well as those supporting the industry’s workers and families. An online teaching hub with courses enables Leanne to teach others how to thrive and survive in the industry, how to get a start, and to know if you are actually cut out to be a miner? 

Creating these courses using the Teachable platform inspired Leanne to also begin creating online courses for others. This is her new passion, helping people to share their talents and knowledge online with the world!
