I have been in the finance industry since leaving school when I began working for a trading bank in Dunedin for 10 years before heading on my OE to London. I spent 3 years working overseas in the international banking sector and the Queens Bank in London. I also spent a lot of time travelling through the Middle East, Europe, Russia and Africa. On my return from my OE I worked for PGG before leaving to have a family.
I am married to Greg with 2 wonderful children, Caleb and Brooke. I enjoy been involved in my kids' activities which includes soccer, swimming, tennis, cricket and gymnastics.
In the motor vehicle industry for well over 15 years doing administration and finance, I have swapped tires for hooves. Having grown up in the city it didn’t take much to convert me into a farm girl when I meet my partner, who is involved in the farming sector. We now have a small sheep farm in North Canterbury. I really enjoy the hands-on learning about livestock. I have two grown boys who now live in Australia and two step-sons. My interests include cycling, touch, watching rugby, and spending time with family and friends.
I grew up on sheep and beef farms in both South Canterbury and North Canterbury so the rural way of life is definitely in my blood.
After leaving school in I spent a year working as a receptionist for a blind cleaning company before moving into the rural industry where I worked in the office for a livestock company for 10 years.
At the beginning of 2016 my husband Matt and I welcomed our first child, Blake. Then in April 2018 we welcomed our second child, Jade with them both keeping us busy. In spare time I love to get outdoors and spend time with friends and family. I also love to spend time in the kitchen baking.
I joined the Hazlett Funding & Procurement team in May 2017 and am really enjoying my role here with a great team.
I was born in Dunedin but have spent most of my time in Christchurch. After graduating from University with a Commerce degree majoring in Accounting and Taxation, I started working in the insurance industry where I remained for 5 years before moving to the Funding & Procurement team at Hazlett in June 2017. In my spare time, I like to go for walks and enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I have lived in Christchurch all my life and I have been in the insurance world for 14 years. Twelve months ago I made the move to be part of the Hazlett team and am absolutely loving being part of such an awesome team. I am looking forward to learning all about the rural sector as I think deep down I am really meant to be a country girl. In my spare time I love nothing better than curling up in the sun with my nose in a good book. My partner Geoff and I have discovered travelling in the last 4 or 5 years (now all the kids are grown) and have been to Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia a few times and absolutely love it and would highly recommend it as a “go to” place to chill. I look forward to my future with Hazlett and feel very proud that I am part of the family.
I have been involved in the stock & station industry since 1984 starting at PGG as an office junior for three years, then two years on the road as a livestock rep, before shifting back to the livestock office for the next the 15 years. I have also worked for Frews Transport as a dispatcher and sales rep for 10 years before joining Hazlett. I am married to Marg and have two children Georgia & Jacob. My interests include rugby, golf and tennis.
I am originally from Dunedin, but have lived in Christchurch for most of my life.
After leaving school I worked for Christchurch Insurance Brokerage for 12 years, in reception, claims and broker support. After my son, Max was born in 2011 I enjoyed a 2 year break and have now returned to part time work.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and enjoy my insurance role with the Hazlett team.
I am originally from Romania and have lived in New Zealand since 2004. I have been in the Insurance industry for many years, joining the NZI team in 2007. In October of 2014 I joined a global Insurance Broking company as an Account Executive here in Christchurch and I got hooked on Insurance Broking.
I have joined the Hazlett Insurance team in March 2019 as Broker Sales Support. I very much enjoy assisting clients with their insurance needs and finding solutions that will better suit their Insurance requirements. Practicing a high level of customer service is very important to me and, as I do in my personal life too, I always strive to succeed in all my endeavors. Continued personal and professional growth is always at the forefront.
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors - mountain biking, skiing, hiking. Also spending time with my family and having cuddles with the family pet.
I was born in Nelson, where a significant part of my childhood I enjoyed was spent visiting my grandparents farm and animals. I moved to Christchurch with my family as a young adult. Since graduating in 2007 from the University of Canterbury with a Commerce degree, majoring in Marketing, I have worked in administration and marketing in several different industries. These include waste and recycling, rural real estate, vehicle leasing and fleet management. My hobbies include fitness, the outdoors, friends and family.
After qualifying as an accountant, I worked in the Stock & Station industry from 1986 until 1999. Since then I have worked at Day-Timers, Hawksbury Trust, and most recently for the CDHB at Burwood Hospital. I am married to Ann and we have two great adult children. I am an avid Canterbury, Crusaders and All Blacks fan and go to all home games. I also enjoy travelling, cycling and camping.
I grew up on a farm in Kaikoura and have wonderful memories of farm life. I then went to the big smoke and was educated at a Girls School in Christchurch and started my working career.
I worked for several years in the export industry exporting wool, skins and animal by products. I then established a successful business in partnership with my husband, which gave me the flexibility to spend time with my children while they were young - they are now young adults. I then moved onto Hazlett and have been here pretty much from the start of the wee company, which is not so wee anymore.
I enjoy walks, gardening and generally socialising with friends and family (and I'll watch rugby if it's on).
I lived all my childhood in Kaiapoi and Woodend, but I am definitely no country girl. There were no farm blocks for me. I have worked in Administration since leaving Kaiapoi High and have worked in many different industries. I happily joined the Hazlett family in July 2018 after working 18 years as an Administration Manager in the fire industry. I love the change and the real family feel that Hazlett has. I am married to Damian and have two daughters, Mackenzie and Tayla. Outside of work I love walking, running, bike riding in the forest close to our home, camping, boating and catching up with friends and family.
