 Personal Statement:

Born in Petone and slowly over the years I have  moved up the valley till reaching Upper Hutt. I have no intention to move further. I have found over the years organisations have managed to find me and somehow I have ended up on committees giving my time and skills to help others.

My time with BPW has helped me greatly in my professional  development and growth as well as make me aware of the issues women face in this world.

I have a great passion for my employment and being able to preserve some of New Zealand’s  Military history for others to use in the future is very rewarding.  Especially this year being the 100 commemorations for World War One and knowing that we have been able to help tell the stories of those who served and gave their lives for the world we have today is very humbling.
