Teacher emerges as leader
Pilbara dance teacher Brie Healy has a vision to ensure high quality arts education is available to rural children and adults in the region.
And for this she has been rewarded by winning the Emerging Leader Award at the Telstra Western Australian Women’s Business Awards in Perth on Thursday night.
As Founding Director and Dance Educator at From Dust Creative Arts, Ms Healy helps develop classes that aid development of physical, mental and social skills for children.
Ms Healy seeks to connect artists, art organisations and businesses to facilitate growth and recognition of local talent.
Her approach to business focuses on passion and altruism, with a focus on implementing sustainable processes.
“The faces in our studio change regularly but the impact we leave on our students will remain with them for a lifetime,” Ms Healy said.
Placing extraordinary value on local talent, Brie is also the Regional Arts Hub Project Officer at Nintirri Inc, a not-for-profit organisation that works to improve the quality of life of Western Australians.
For 24 years, the Telstra Business Women’s Awards have recognised and celebrated the outstanding achievements of Australian women in business.
Telstra regional Australia executive Janet Barnes, congratulated the Western Australian winners, who are all inspiring examples of leaders who are challenging the status quo within and beyond their industries.
“Ms Knipe has done extraordinary work for the automotive industry as well as being a powerful mentor for successful local business women in the future,” she said.
“By employing a majority of women, not only has she fostered a sense of inclusion within the industry, she has also cultivated impressive growth for the business.”
All 2019 State and Territory winners will be invited to Sydney for the National Awards judging on Wednesday, May 15.
The national winners will then be announced at a dinner celebration on Thursday, May 16.
