Meet our Team
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 continued her track in the 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.

She has worked in many administrative roles over her working life, she ran her own business for six years making and selling gorgeous gift hampers filled with Tasmanian produce and sharing her passion for our local products all over the world. She now fills her days with some accounting & bookkeeping work, along with the joy of spending as much time exploring her local areas beach and walking tracks and enjoying time with her little family - husband, son and (senior) pups. She joins the Sprout Team with enthusiasm and passion about our state and all that it has to offer and cannot wait to spread her wealth of skills and knowledge to the team, the producers and the members.
