Bio currently not available.


I hold a business degree majoring in accounting and marketing, have been a member of the NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants since 1981, served over twenty years as the Trust's Financial Accountant, and was Manager of the Ashburton Trust Charitable Foundation for a time.  I live in Ashburton with my husband Tony, have two adult children, and work in the dairy livestock industry.   

I enjoy a strong interest in the welfare of our community and stood for the Ashburton Trust to assist the responsible financial management needed for the next phase of its development, consolidating and cementing recent investments for the benefit of the community.
