Tell us a little about yourself

I grew up on a Cheese producing Dairy farm in Ireland surrounded by the gorgeous countryside. I’m a huge fan of the outdoors and spend most weekends hiking or simply taking in the great weather.

As well as this, I also enjoy exploring Wellington, learning more about the local culture, local food and taking in all the new exhibits at Te Papa! 

Tell us about what you have achieved in your personal and/or work-life

It is fair to say that I am a keen explorer and traveller after trekking throughout Europe and Australia and completing the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in 2014, hiking hundreds of kilometres from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela over a 3-week period. I am also a massive fitness fan and trained as a Pound Fitness Instructor.

Tell us about your career to date

I completed a Master’s degree in Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Science majoring in Chemistry and Biology. I used these qualifications to pursue a career as a second level science teacher before joining Parker Bridge Recruitment, so if you are looking for any science-related jokes, I’m your woman!

I also join in with the family business and make cheese when I’m back at home.
