I was born in Brighton, England. My family, consisting of my husband and two children, Scott (15) and Kirsten (13), and myself moved to New Zealand in November 2000. I was employed for three years by an Auto Electrical company in Otrohonga and then I was employed by the National Bank for eleven years in the same area.
As a family we came over to the Bay of Plenty for a holiday and fell in love with the area. I found employment with Bruce Brown of Manning Gibbs & Brown in Te Puke where I have been for the past four years.
I have one granddaughter, Toni, who is now 15 and one grand-puppy. I love kayaking in my spare time, reading, walking, swimming and beach time.
