Episode 67. Frances Cooper – Something was missing

After high school, Frances Cooper ticked all the boxes society told her to: go to university, get a great job,  land a promotion, and keep climbing the career ladder.

On paper, Fran’s life looked like hard work and success. But… something was missing.

So, in her late 20’s she took off to Africa – a decision that would lead to a series of experiences and choices in her life that would see her settle down on Mt Riddock Station in Central Australia. No, Fran is not a “backpacker”, but a full-time long-term employee of the station. This is her story.
