Meet The Founders

Jessica Welsh and Chad Fowler, Founders of The Independence Crew.

Our Story

Jess and Chad have lived in the Southern Tablelands of NSW for the past 12 years, growing their lively brood of children and experiencing the benefits of a rural community.

Jess’s entire working career has involved caring, supporting, and nursing in some form. Beginning her working career as an animal carer Jess’s love for helping grew and began to transform and she started to ask herself the question ‘What can I do to make a difference?’. In 2013, Jess went on to work in the community as an aged care worker and onto in-home carer and becoming an enrolled nurse all the while growing, nursing, and nurturing her and Chad’s 7 children.
After the hustle and bustle of a Sydney existence working as a labourer and the impacts of a major work accident, Chad took to rural living instantly. Always a doer Chad has spent a lot of time over the years within his own house and garden tinkering, renovating, and giving their kids hands on life experience so it was a natural transition for him when he began working in the community completing home and yard maintenance for those who needed an extra hand. Chad has built strong relationships within his work as a reliable and hard-working handyman.

In late 2020 when the question, “What can I do to make a difference?” was still lingering in Jess’s mind, Chad and Jess made the decision to sit down and work out if we were to build a business what would we want the business to embody? And so, The Independence Crew was born. A place where your independence is what matters to us and where we can support you in achieving everything from the smallest task to your biggest dreams!
