Who inspires you?

I meet people every day amazing things – I just can’t narrow it down to one person.

Where is your favourite place in the Waikato?

I am a huge fan of the beautiful walks we are spoilt with all over Waikato. From Pirongia to the Pinnacles in the Coromandel. So lucky to have all of this in our backyard!

What’s the best thing you bring to Seed?

Creativity and strategy are my two biggest strengths. I have helped big name New Zealand and overseas brands tell their story so I am pumped to bring this experience to Seed.

What do you spend your time on?

I run my own PR & Marketing consultancy which helps businesses craft and tell their story better.  Storytelling extends into my free time too – as a lover of theatre I also love telling stories by performing onstage!

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

Well aside from the fact that I am terrified of heights, the most courageous thing I have ever done was launching my own business. It has been even scarier than bungy jumping.

What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?

My business! I am incredibly lucky to have found a career that I love working with amazing businesses and brands.

What colour crayon would you be?

Yellow. I’m completely obsessed – plus it suits my ‘always think big’ philosophy.

What inspired you to join Seed Waikato?

I hope that as part of Seed I can help us shake the negative stigma associated with ‘Hamilton’ and the Waikato region.  I have recently returned to the region after almost a decade away – I am ready to shout from the rooftops about just how great a place the Waikato is to be! We are a place filled with talented people doing amazing things in business, in the non-profit sector, the arts and in the community.

What does Seed Waikato mean to you?

Seed to me is about connecting young people in our region with opportunities to connect and learn. It is also about increasing collaboration and understanding between generations and the wider community.
