I am Northland born and raised and spent my early years growing up on dairy farms across the region, before leaving to study at The University of Otago and abroad in Canada. No matter how many times I have left for study or work, Northland has always drawn me back and I am proud to call it home.
I’ve worked in economic development for over five years and have spent time prior to that working for multinationals in the finance and manufacturing sectors, both in New Zealand and internationally. My role at Northland Inc involves working with organisations in Northland to get economic development projects investment ready and help them to secure investment. I also support inward investment opportunities for all sectors and work with investors to help them find a home in the region.
Outside of work you’ll mostly find me on one of Northland’s stunning beaches during the summer or chasing a toddler down the side-line of a rugby game in the winter.
