style magazine, Forbes, New South Wales

Jacqui Greig was born in 1981 in Condobolin NSW, to parents Cary and Lorraine L’Estrange. Jacqui spent her early years growing up on the family property “Lara” before Cary and Lorraine sold the property – complete with bumper crop – and purchased the local newsagency.

Jacqui’s schooling took her to Bathurst in 1996 where she was a boarder at All Saints’ College for four years. This experience was a formative one for Jacqui, who relished the opportunity to grow academically and socially. She finished her years at All Saints’ as house captain and prefect.

Jacqui took 12 months off between high school and university and spent a gap year in Somerset, England, where she taught physical education in a co-educational secondary school and assisted in a boarding house. Her year in the UK provided many travel prospects and gave Jacqui an understanding of her own resilience and an appreciation for the wider world. Returning home, Jacqui completed a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Print Journalism at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, universally recognised as the top communication course in the State.

Jacqui’s first career job after finishing university was as Editorial Associate at Luxury Travel Magazine in Sydney and from here she took a position as Deputy Editor at Instyle magazine.

Jacqui’s next move – starting her own magazine – was due to a desire to move back to Central NSW to her husband’s property in Tottenham.

This meant that Jacqui had to consider her future career as a journalist in a town of 300 people with no newspaper.
Hence the concept of style magazine came about. Jacqui’s vision was to create a vehicle for women in regional areas – to showcase their lifestyles and experiences, creating an essential lifestyle guide – a magazine to celebrate real women, and one they would have ownership of.

Jacqui Greig now resides in Forbes with her husband, and firmly believes that style magazine provides a valuable service to the region, not only by keeping people informed and entertained, but also by providing them with pride in their communities.
