Born and bred in Dunedin, I am a 41 year young female working full-time as the Financial Controller at Crest Commercial Cleaning and studying part-time at Otago University. I have been working for Crest for 13 years, having been asked to join them in 1994. I had previously been working for Grant at his and his brothers' accounting firm, G S McLauchlan & Co.
I grew up on the peninsula in Macandrew Bay and attended Tahuna Intermediate and Bayfield High School. Each day I would have to get the bus into school because Macandrew Bay is about 15 minutes out of town.
