After leaving university I worked as a lawyer, then taught in New Zealand and overseas. My work in HR draws on both these skill sets. Before joining POD I was an HR Manager in the not for profit sector.

People fascinate me and I enjoy the challenge of applying employment law to the infinite scenarios that humans create in the workplace – often tricky and always interesting. I get a lot of satisfaction from building positive relationships and helping to solve peoples’ problems.

When I am not at work, I’m kept busy in my other role as Mum. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially if wine and cheese are involved. I do a lot of walking. I also enjoy people watching and learning about what makes people tick; in real life or through reading, films and documentaries. Hopefully in the future I will do more travel.
