I've had the pleasure of working all over the world, and am now lucky enough to call New Plymouth my home. Having moved here with my now fiance, it was originally a struggle to break into the cliques that there seemed to be. It's an honour to join this group with like minded women, who want to help better not only ourselves, but each other and the community as a whole. I'm hoping that by joining The Network it will help me to expand my connections further in the New Plymouth community, and work towards a way that we can break the mould to make it easier for other women like myself from the 'outside' wanting to form connections, friendships, and for those seeking guidance. We need to work together to ensure it's not just who you know that counts but also what you know, and to strengthen our positions as powerful women in the business community.
