I chose to move to Taupō in 2016 to take up a planning position at Cheal Consultants.
I was (and still am) attracted to Taupō by its natural beauty, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
I have an environmental management and planning background, which includes experience in community engagement. I have worked on consenting significant developments in the district that have helped to shape Taupō.
I enjoy helping clients navigate the myriad of regulations and rules to obtain consents for developments that mould our district. This in turn provides opportunities (for example employment, housing, or wellbeing) to our community and encourages new people to our community
