Tegan is a Town Planner at Anderson Group.
After completing her secondary schooling in Ouyen, Tegan accepted an Administration Officer position with the Planning and Building team of Development Services Branch at Mildura Rural City Council. It was then that her interest in Planning evolved and she went on to study Urban and Regional Planning (majoring in Social and Community Planning) at the University of South Australia in Adelaide. Whilst at University she completed a semester studying abroad at the University of Calgary, Canada which formed the foundations for her thesis ‘The impacts of hosting a mega-event on the host city’ which aligned with Vancouver hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics. She also took part in a 10-day intensive study visit to George Town, Penang Malaysia focusing on environmental, social and community planning.
Tegan worked as an Assistant Town Planner during University breaks at MRCC and began full time employment as a Town Planner once graduating. Whilst with MRCC, Tegan worked within both the Statutory and Strategic Planning teams, building on her local knowledge and expertise to plan for a positive future not only for Mildura, but for the wider region. Having been born and bred Mallee, she grew up in Walpeup and has always enjoyed building local relationships and assisting in a smooth process to achieving a positive outcome for the client. Tegan has extensive work experience liaising with local authorities and external consultants, and is building greater relationships expanding into adjoining Municipalities of Swan Hill Rural City Council and across the river into Wentworth, Balranald and Broken Hill Shires. Tegan has worked with various residential, commercial, industrial and farming projects, as well as worked alongside Metropolitan Planners to develop local Housing and Residential Development plans.
Whilst Tegan and her husband Tom have had a couple of relocations to Adelaide whilst they navigated their next employment move, they appreciate everything that Mildura has to offer and have enjoyed returning and settling back into the laid back Sunraysia lifestyle with their young children Harriet and Will. Tegan has been providing Town Planning advice and services for Anderson Group since March 2017 and is working both in the office and from home. Tegan is available for client meetings by appointment.
