Our staff

Jennifer Robinson is Sprout Tasmania's General Manager. 


Jennifer spent the last decade in Sydney working in both the private and Higher Education sectors in operations and people management including Executive officer of the School of Psychiatry at UNSW.  Since returning to Tasmania in 2014 with her husband and daughter Madeline, Jennifer has relished in rekindling connections with friends and family, but also more broadly with the local Tasmanian community which she had felt was lacking during her time in the big smoke.  Jennifer has continued her track in University sector through the UTAS Research division supporting academics with grant applications, eligibility and reporting requirements, and then stepped away from this role to have her second child, Augustus.  Since this time Jennifer has been the General Manager of Sprout, and brings with her amazing people skills, unwavering passion for all things Tasmanian and a drive to support our small producer sector to thrive and become more collaborative.

Jennifer loves the outdoors, attempts to grow her own produce in whatever pots she can find (until she moves into her house with a big backyard) and thrives on a work-life balance that enables her to spend time with her kids, and contribute to their future through her role at Sprout. 

Carissa Devereaux is our Administration Officer (aka. The Guru)


A local Tassie girl through and through, Carissa loves everything about our beautiful state. She has worked in many administrative roles over her working life, ran her own business for six years selling gorgeous Tasmanian produce in gift hampers all over Australia, and now fills her days with a part-time accounting & bookkeeping role, along with the joy of spending as much time exploring and enjoying time with her little family -  husband, son and two (senior) pups. She joins the Sprout Team with enthusiasm and passion about our state and all that we have to offer and cannot wait to spread her wealth of skills and knowledge to the team.
