Originally from the UK, I came to New Zealand in 2002 having completed a law degree and deciding to travel for a year. I backpacked around Australia and Indonesia for 4 months before coming here and never leaving!
I spent time travelling and experiencing some of the incredible NZ sights before settling in Auckland and starting a retail role. Once we realised we wanted to call NZ home, I began a career in Administration, starting in a Reception role and moving into a PA then an EA position at a large nationwide company. Here I learnt a massive amount about working at the heart of an Executive team and supporting the team to grow the business.
After starting our family we took an opportunity to move to the Bay of Plenty, away from the big city and into the beach lifestyle. I worked for a solar power company here in the BOP, before taking several years out to complete our family.
The opportunity to work at Ryan+Alexander came along just as I was starting to think of engaging my work brain again, and it is very exciting to get back into the office and be working with such a dynamic team!
