Home is where the heart is – I’m extremely proud to say I was born in the Papakura Maternity Hospital (as was my husband Greg, our children and our gorgeous grandchildren) and myself and my family have been raised in the area.
I attended the local schools, Papakura Intermediate, Papakura High School and then went on to attend Auckland University as an adult student where I studied business with a strong focus on marketing.
During my school years, I participated in various sports – athletics, netball and in later years touch rugby and squash to name just a few. Greg also played rugby and touch rugby and as a family we are always at various events supporting each other and our children.
My career has been mainly based around sales and marketing both in corporate and private companies. I spent many years in the poultry industry before moving to work in our family business. After we sold the business I spent the next ten years working in various roles for the Papakura Council and once amalgamated, the Auckland Council.
I am a community minded person having done volunteer work for Canteen, Crime Watch and currently I’m on the Executive of the Papakura Business Association.
Greg and I have bought and sold a number of properties over the years both residential and commercial within the Papakura and Franklin areas. I know the area extremely well and I am confident that I have the attributes, professional knowledge and marketing skill set to achieve the best possible
