Meet our host

What She Did Next is produced and hosted by Jacqui Ooi, whose career has spanned two decades in the media industry and not-for-profit sector. 

As a young journalist, Jacqui worked in senior editorial roles at some of Australia’s best-selling magazines.

A decade on, she made the leap to the not-for-profit sector, travelling to remote corners of the globe to report on aid projects and humanitarian emergencies, and bringing international attention to issues affecting women and children.

Over the course of her career, she has interviewed people from all walks of life, from politicians to Hollywood stars to children and families around the world, and she is thrilled to now be shining a light on the stories of inspiring women across Australia.
