Where can you see yourself next?

Staff Spotlight

Staff Spotlight

What date did you join Montgomery?  September 2021 (during lockdown!!!).

What is the best & worst part of the job so far?  The people I work with for sure!  Everyone is so friendly and supportive.  I already feel so welcome.  For the worst part – although there are perks to working from home, I’m keen to experience working alongside everyone in person at the Monty office.

Where did you grow up?  I grew up in West Side Auckland, New Zealand.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  TV News presenter.

Who is your mentor or greatest inspiration?  Definitely my mum.  She’s an incredibly strong, hard-working and kind person.

What is your greatest achievement?  Surviving a pandemic.

What is your favourite movie?   There are so many good movies to choose from, how can you pick just one?!  I think I’ll have to go with ‘Shrek’ – it’s a feel-good, funny film for the whole family with a great soundtrack.

What is your favourite board game?  Articulate!

If you could be someone else for a day who would it be? (living or dead)  Kylie Minogue.

Best holiday you’ve been on?  I went back to visit my family in New Zealand just before the pandemic hit and that was the best holiday I’ve been on so far because I got to hug my grandparents and spend quality time with them, and eat good food.  What more could you want?

What three items are a must have if you were stuck on a desert island?  Sunscreen, peanut M&M’s and a ukulele.

If you won lotto what would you do?  I’d blast ‘Celebration’ by Kool and the Gang, have a bit of a boogie, then spoil my close family and friends with an all-expenses paid trip to every wonderful destination I can think of.

On the other side of COVID, what will you not take for granted?  Brunch.
