In March 2020, Men’s Sheds of WA welcomed a new team member when Jaxon Ashley joined the team as a new Shed Development Officer.
Jaxon grew up on a farm between Narrogin and Williams in WA, often working with his hands on the farm and being around other men doing the same. He studied Business and Community Development in Perth and Melbourne focussing on the kind of lifelong learning that makes Men’s Sheds so valuable.
Prior to joining the team at Men’s Sheds of WA, Jaxon was a Community Educator with The Regional Men’s Health Initiative. In that role he travelled the length of regional, rural and remote WA promoting men’s health and holistic wellbeing.
Jaxon is looking forward to being part of the Men’s Shed movement, engaging with the WA community and doing something positive for the men of this state.
