Patricia is the Human Resources Coordinator for Volunteer Service Abroad, joining the team in October 2021.
Originally from the UK but has lived in New Zealand for many years. She has worked for 4 different NGOs, private and public sector organisations, both in the UK and NZ.
She will be contributing to Human Resources especially relating to records, internal staff recruitment, health and safety, inductions and exits. She especially enjoys contributing to organisations with similar values to her own in a collaborative environment. This aligns really well with one out of work activities, Soka Gakki International Buddhist activities. She also loves walking (preferably with friends and along the beach), other exercise, gardening, movies and being with her kids.
