New Home Consultant for EasyBuild Taranaki


I am proud and happy to be the New Home Consultant for EasyBuild Taranaki, where I took up this role recently as it launched here in Taranaki in June 2019. I was on the hunt for a career in Residential construction and with many steps and actions planned and networking with the right people at the right time, I comfortably fell in with the team at Pepper Construction.

I am married with 4 children and reside here in New Plymouth. I am focused on helping and supporting my family, and balance of my career development and I enjoy creative projects, like book binding, reading, writing, as well as playing tennis and walking. I love a great social atmosphere eating or cooking amazing food with a lovely glass of white wine.

My  career has encompassed many industries. I grew up in the Dairying community in Taranaki and managed a share milking business 10 years ago with my young children. I began my career in Hospitality for my love of food, cooking and travel, to help others enjoy a fine dining experience and share my passion for travel with others.

I hold a certificate in Business with additional education in Project Management, Finance and leadership.

I spent 4 years working in Wellington for Strait Shipping as the Hospitality Supervisor on the Straitsman ferry. The highlight was going out of my way to help travelers and people from all walks of life get to where they are going and helping them plan their travel routes.

I enjoy organising and a planning with the intention to help people achieve their goals. This led me to develop my Project Management and leadership skills further over the past 5 years working as a Project Manager for an Australian wholesale Office Furniture company arranging and leading Commercial office fit-outs. My love for organising, and working closely with production/design teams, and freight companies led me to pursue my ideal  career in the construction and housing industry here in Taranaki, amalgamating a lot of my passions into one focus.

It can be daunting and overwhelming with all the steps and planning involved and I would like to help you with that pressure while you get on with life. I will be there with you every step of the way guiding you through the building process from your vision through to creating Concept plans, development, progress payments and Master Build contracts.

My goal is to see our housing supply increase in NZ with affordable, warm, dry homes that are available to every parent, grandparent and child.

Family and friends are very important to me and I will always enjoy relaxing walks, music, laughs, great conversations and wonderful food.

I love to help people achieve their goals, managing and organising the tough stuff that others don't have the time or the energy to do themselves.

I am a plan, organise and action women, enjoying getting things done.
