I work in VSA’s recruitment team and it’s my job to find the skilled volunteers we send on assignment.  I’m also responsible for operational management of the team and business process improvement.  I greatly enjoy meeting people from across the country who are ready to step out of their comfort zone and share their skills. 

Previous to my role at VSA I spent three years living and working in rural Japan promoting grassroots international exchange, and a further two years in London where I worked for an education organisation supporting local families and schools.  I’m originally from Northern Ireland, but made Wellington my home in 2017.

I love being surrounded by passionate staff every day, learning about Pacific cultures and being part of an organisation that is striving to make a positive change for people and planet.
