I broadened my practical skills and technical abilities working in the wide-ranging field of natural sciences. I’ve also been an IT trainer, a teacher, a lecturer and even a recruit trainer in the military before taking time out of the workforce to raise a family. Originally joining Auckland Central Community Shed as a Member, I was their Co-Ordinator until restarting my studies in carpentry. Now, when I’m not running WomenzShed, I work for Ockham Construction as a remedials manager.
Sharing what I know has always been important to me. So with a passion to help other women experience the satisfaction of building, fixing and creating things, we’ve created NZ’s first WomenzShed.
