A previous biochemist with sales, customer service & marketing experience, I joined the International Department in July 2019. My three children all attended ANI and during that time I was Chairperson of the PTA and a BOT member, so I have strong ties to the school.
My role in the International Department is varied with a focus on looking after homestays, making sure that the students and host families are well supported, updating our systems so that all material can be accessed remotely as well as compiling and submitting our annual Self-Review which is a MOE requirement.
I am passionate about education, fundraising and supporting the learning environment, still being involved in the wider community as Co-President of Epsom Girls Grammar School Old Girls Association and have been a Board member of the EGGS Foundation Trust since 2012. I have also been the Treasurer and Secretary of the Aorere College Foundation Trust since 2015, my old school located in Mangere.
From 2015 to 2020, I was invited onto the interview panel for Auckland Central Community of Learning and have enjoyed immensely being a part of the team of Principals that appointed our Across School Leaders.
Music, movies, watching rugby and football and spending time with family are all things I enjoy in my free time.
