Yolande Woods has crafted a life that beautifully blends her diverse passions of farming and design, taking her from the rustic cattle yards of her childhood, to the heights of the cockpit and the world of captivating color consultations.
Let’s start with your background! Can you share with us your career journey and what you’re currently up to?
Born and raised as a 5th generation beef producer on the land with a simple but hard-working ethic instilled in us. I left the school that I attended as a boarder from Year 6 to Year 11. Even though I finished school early, I have been learning and open to new experiences at every turn.
I first had the opportunity to own and run a gift shop at an early age of 17, then helped run our family-owned farm and feed-lot on the Western Downs. Owned and operated a butcher shop, started interior decorating, and purchased a cattle property out here at Goondiwindi, QLD.
