Jax is the General Manager of Southern Cross Truffles. She manages all husbandries for trees managed by SCT and with this experience is able to act in a consulting role as well as being the key person in organising sales and marketing of truffles. She is also coordinating overall harvesting services, including the provision of other trained dogs to hunt for truffles.
Jax also looks after all the nursery facilities, contracting her service to Southern Woods Nursery to infect tree seedlings with truffle spore, as well as infecting all of Southern Cross Truffles seedlings for sale. Jax has done this since 2007 and has consistently managed to gain a positive infection rate when the trees are certified before sale.
Jax also enjoys competing in running events, along with Bill, with the favourite race of the running calender being the Molesworth where they enter a Lee family team with each runner to do a half marathon (runs in the family, no pun intented).
After working for Hiking New Zealand she also loves to get out around New Zealand and find herself in the middle of nowhere (as long as the insect repellant is packed).
