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 HRL 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 have been involved in the stock & station industry since 1984 starting at PGG as an office junior for 3 years then 2 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 Rural. I am married to Marg and have 2 children Georgia & Jacob, my interests include rugby, golf and tennis.
