I love to see my clients succeed. Even more so when myself and Cuffs have played an integral part in their success. We have built a business on delivering expert advice, in plain English, and providing real service to our clients. Outside of work my wife Robyn and I are raising 2 school aged children, Liam and Olivia.  I am an enthusiastic member of the Hokitika Volunteer Fire Brigade, carrying on a family tradition passed down through many generations on both sides of my family and also enjoy a spot of fishing/whitebaiting when I find the time.

After completing my degree at Otago University I moved up to the Coast intending to save some money then head off overseas...  Instead I settled down with a local lad and we now have 2 daughters. Moving to Nelson at the end of 2015 I've been lucky enough to have the best of both worlds. With setting up an office here I get to keep working with my awesome clients (some of whom I've had a 15 year relationship with) and at the same time live in the Sunshine Capital of NZ, where I've been able to rekindle my love of the surf.

I grew up here on the West Coast and really enjoy it especially the lifestyle. I lived in Christchurch for a year and completed an Interior Decor course. When relocating back to the West Coast to be with my partner an opportunity came up for me to do an apprenticeship at Cuffs. Out of work I am chasing after my 2 young children and spending time with my family and friends.  I love to play netball and basketball and enjoy most outdoor activities.

Growing up on the Coast offers a great lifestyle, and still does.  After some time overseas my husband and I returned home and have two young children, whom enjoy our semi-rural lifestyle.  Being a mum and working part-time keeps me busy, but outside of this I enjoy a spot of gardening.

I'm a busy mum of two who returned to the Coast in 2005, when I decided to make the move home to bring up our two children.  When I'm not at work they keep me super busy with all their sport and activities, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  I also enjoy travelling and reading a good book.

I have lived on the Coast my entire life and love the lifestyle this land has to offer and the sense of community this region provides. In my spare time I enjoy running, sailing, hiking and drama. I plan to become qualified in accounting as I believe It's an invaluable skill to have, I see it as a great way to be able to help out our local business's.

Originally from the Coast and after 10 years living in Christchurch, my husband and I made the decision to come back to the Coast to bring up our family. We have been back here for over 11 years and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and all the opportunities the outdoors offer here. Outside work my three girls keep me busy.

After graduating from Canterbury University I worked for large multinationals while on my OE. On returning to New Zealand I channelled my career towards consulting roles in people capabilities on and off the West Coast. With husband Chris, we have three very active boys and a couple of family businesses. I now undertake contracts that work around our family in the not-for-profit sector.
