Role: People and Capability Manager
From: Papua New Guinea

Born in Papua New Guinea and raised in Australia, I moved to New Zealand five years ago after my husband was offered a great opportunity to work in Palmerston North. 

As parents, we love the variety of outdoor pursuits available for our three busy boys in the Mighty Manawatu. Whether its track cycling, road cycling or mountain biking – you name it, they do it! Fortunately for my husband and I, spending so much time traversing the beautiful landscapes and terrains of the region is no great hardship.

As the People and Capability Manager for NZP, I have loved being able to see the positive changes that have resulted from both my team’s and my own contribution to the business. It is rewarding and self-satisfying knowing that the time and effort we commit each day not only goes towards growing our company, but ultimately makes peoples’ lives better.
