I am an experienced administrator who has recently returned back from a two-year working holiday in the United Kingdom. Whilst in the UK, I was an office manager for a marketing agency in the heart of central London. This allowed me to dive into the marketing world and explore my creative side. I was not only an office manager but very hands on with projects and live events. I absolutely love the hustle and bustle of the big city but after a year of living here during COVID, I am more than happy to be back in Dunedin!
I was bought up in Dunedin where I was constantly outdoors on the farm and playing sports. This has led me to love adventuring the outdoors and falling in love with netball.
Being a part of the property managing world now, I am not only looking forward to building relationships with tenants, owners and creditors but also expanding my knowledge and skills in the administration world.
