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.
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.
