DVS Consultant for Taranaki and Whanganui
I grew up on a farm near Kaponga with my four brothers and one sister.
I worked in various office jobs before moving to Switzerland where I spent 13 years working for an American bank, Citicorp. I worked in Corporate Banking, Private Banking and International Trusts. I was also involved in writing project specs before becoming the “User Acceptance Testing Manager for the Europe business side of a large global bank project. Upon my return to New Zealand I settled in New Plymouth, took a sabbatical, set up an office for a business owner before becoming a field officer for a not for profit organisation.
I am/have been involved in a number of community organisations and events as a volunteer and believe it is important to give back to your community.
I am a long standing member of the Ngamotu Breakfast Toastmasters Club. I held various roles in the Rotary Club of New Plymouth before becoming President.
One of my great loves is fashion and this is one of my top happy places.
My farming upbringing has given me a strong desire to create healthy lifestyles and environments. This desire has evolved into my present business
where I advocate for healthy homes.
