Raising my children as the fourth generation in our family living in Taupō region has created indelible links to the past and the future.

Leaving my corporate role as the Sustainability Business Partner for Laminex NZ (Fletcher Building) after thirteen years in the fold and beginning as a small business owner was a leap of faith, and from this, I have a depth of understanding as to the challenges and wins to be found.  As Founder and Principal Consultant of Green Start NZ, I engage with individuals and organisations who seek to become more resilient, more conscious and more impactful – in a positive way. This is my ‘Why’.

I am excited to support the Taupō Business Chamber and the wider business community with my ethics, understanding and experience relating to the environment, sustainability and governance.
