Born and raised in Wellington, my career began in the retail and business banking world, after which I moved into Leadership, Career Coaching and Training Roles. I have been fortunate in being exposed to many different divisions and business units, providing me a broad understanding of business and human resourcing needs, and allowing me to live in various locations across New Zealand. I travelled and lived abroad before deciding to settle in the beautiful Bay of Plenty in 2013.
A real highlight was my work as a career coach in one of New Zealand’s largest corporates, during a challenging time of mass redeployment and redundancies – not only was I able to make a real impact and help over a hundred people find their way through an unexpected change in their lives, but also in discovering a new pathway and mastering the steps required in the job search process. This experience became invaluable in Leadership roles that followed, allowing me to manage through change, build effective teams and motivate others to become the best they could be, by retaining my vision as a supportive, enthusiastic leader working towards the common goals of the organisation.
In 2018, I welcomed the opportunity to join the talented team at Ryan + Alexander, working as a consultant specialising in the temporary and contract space, alongside coaching candidates one to one, in our career and outplacement program.
