About New In Town - Your Team
Jacqui Armstrong - Principal
Jacqui has personally experienced life as an expat, having moved interstate numerous times with her husband and two boys. These sometimes stressful but life-changing events have made her aware of what really matters when relocating to a new place.
Jacqui can understand and empathise with her clients, because she has also experienced the concerns and important considerations involved when relocating interstate or overseas. The stress of leaving family and friends, and all the comforts of home, while also having to adjust to life in a new city can be overwhelming.
For twelve years, Jacqui was employed by Australian Red Cross - the world's largest humanitarian organisation. Working with members from culturally diverse backgrounds was ideally suited to Jacqui's warm and friendly nature.
With a broad range of experience in event management, fundraising and community services, Jacqui is well-placed to ensure your relocation runs efficiently, and with the utmost integrity. She possesses impeccable organisational skills and the leadership qualities required to manage the relocations team.
Many outstanding testimonials attest to Jacqui’s extraordinary and caring service.

Kirsty Holland - Writer
Kirsty is an explorer who travelled from the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, to Sydney, to Wollongong, to Germany and back again. Finally crossing the Nullarbor to Western Australia for her biggest adventure yet! "
Kirsty started out as a typical starry-eyed engineering graduate when she decided to take the plunge and cross the Nullarbor to WA when she finished uni. With nothing but an old microwave box full of stuff and a backpack, she rolled up in Dunsborough for her first day of work. Meeting her Husband on day 1 was an added bonus, and when they decided to make the move to Perth after their wedding a year later, they were soon thrust into the world of parenthood – Perth style!
10 years, 1 son, twin girls, and a new house later, they find themselves in the new season of parenting school aged kids and juggling all the demands of work, social lives, and extracurricular activities!
Writing from her experience and the things she has learnt from all her new Perth ie mates, she runs a small writing business, dreams of penning the next great Perth-based novel, helps mums get connected through community groups, and keeps the wheels turning on the Homefront!
