I was lucky enough to have been born and raised in Masterton, Wairarapa. I am the youngest of three girls. My mother (Prue) has distilled many attributes in me and all to this day show, passion, honesty, determination, setting personal high standards and achieving them (only to name a few). I have a wonderful step-father (Paul) who I have learnt that if I put my mind to something and believe in it then it will happen. My father (George) taught me the meaning of humour and to always look on the brighter side of life and that the glass is always half full! My family is extremely close-knit and mean the world to me.
I was schooled at St Patrick’s primary school and went on to St Matthew’s Colligate. Right through my schooling I was involved in a wide variety of sports but had a love for athletics and netball. From a young age I was part of the Harcourts team, I started cleaning the offices after school and then went onto being an administrator in the weekend. After I finished school I lived in Wellington for a year and studied at Sir George Seymour College of Travel and Tourism. I graduated from there with distinction in Advanced Business, Travel and Tourism. I moved back to Masterton and was fortunate enough that a position was available as an administrator at Harcourts so grabbed the opportunity with two hands and started full time in 2007. Come end of 2008 my love of travel and wanting to reach out in the great unknown came into play and I decided (much to my families surprise) to have a year abroad and move to Bossey, France, a little village on the fringe of Geneva, Switzerland. I went over and was a full time, live in au pair (Nanny) to Sebastian (3 years old) and Oscar (6 months). Mid 2009 I was given a great job opportunity working at the International Labour Organisation (a UN specialised agency which seeks the promotion of social justice and internationally recognised human and labour rights). My contract ended, end of 2009, and by this time I was ready to come home.
I am backed by my extremely supportive husband, Duncan and together we have a gorgeous son, Jimmy.
I have a family who work in the industry and are passionate about real estate and I believe…
“Real estate is in my blood!”
