What do you do?

Human Resources Co-ordinator, assisting the HR and Volunteer Recruitment Manager and colleagues with the day-to-day, people-related stuff like health and safety, recruitment, HR policies and more.

What’s your favourite thing about your job?

Working with such a mix of brainy, passionate and colourful people doing their best to make a difference through the work of VSA. And the shared lunches are pretty good.  

What's your favourite thing about living in Wellington?

The multicultural vibe, the coffee, food, Bookabach for mini-breaks, and proximity to the gorgeous Pacific Islands.  

What are you renowned for in the office?

My coffee habit (I get a little bossy over the coffee making process in the staff kitchen).  

If you could be anywhere in the world on a Friday afternoon/evening, where would it be?

In a beach Fale in Samoa, looking at the sea and sipping on a nice chilled coconut water (from the coconut), or a New Zealand Sauv.
