I joined Auror 2 years ago having spent the prior 8 years of my career working in the NZ growth saas space.

Previously I had worked for medium sized companies in both London and Auckland, and now I have really found my place working with companies like Auror, that are destined to grow into something mighty and a little bit different, with lots of clever people that make the journey fun along the way.

I am passionate about finance being a partner at Auror and not the accountant in the corner, where the numbers tell a great story and we can make everything we do in the background easy so all the other teams can get on with their day jobs. Whilst also making sure leaders have the right information to make good decisions. I am a people-led manager, always open to new ideas and here to guide, but want you to feel empowered to take the lead and own your patch. Outside of work, I have 10-year-old twin boys. As a family we love nothing more than being outside, playing at the beach in the summer, and in the snow in the winter. Check out my LinkedIn here.
