How long have you been working at OWMP?

2 years and 3 months

What led you to becoming a staff member at OWMP?

I started at Sacred Heart College and was doing an awesome job there and OWMP needed someone to come and steady the ship, so they moved me over

What’s your favourite part of your job?

The staff and members, and how no two days are the same. Also seeing staff grow in roles and members achieve their goals

Why do you think health and fitness is important?

It is a big part of everyday life and makes the simple things easy. Everyone should do some sort of exercises even if it’s just walking for 10 minutes a day or a 2 hour gym session 4 times a week. It also makes you feel great.

What’s one thing we didn’t know about you that will surprise us?

This is a tough one – as a child I was scared of loud noises and had to wear ear protectors and watch from inside if fireworks were being set off

How would your friends describe you?

Easy going, just happy to go with the flow

Where is your favourite place in New Zealand?

The whole place is a great place, but I’ve enjoyed Queenstown, Pukehina and most places up north.

Is there anything else you would like to say to our Y customers?

Thanks for being awesome! We enjoy seeing you achieve your goals and appreciated all your feedback so we can make this place better for all to enjoy and hopefully you’ll be part of the Y family for a long time.
