| What did you do before?
I was the communications manager for the Chamber of Commerce and Business Hawke’s Bay. I was involved in writing success stories around Icehouse Alumni so got to know the business that way. Before that, I was a broadcast journalist for the BBC in the UK and came back here and worked for Newstalk ZB and for a marketing company.
| What do you do at The Icehouse?
I am the connector in Hawke’s Bay; whether people want to know more about the brand, get connected with people from The Icehouse network, or get some more specialised support through programmes, workshops and coaching. I also run the office at The Business Hub in Napier, book meetings and write copy and content for any promotional activity for The Icehouse.
In 2003, I planted a vineyard in Hawke’s Bay and started a wine brand
I went to boarding school when I was nine, which made me very independent
