Life experience

​I have quite diverse life experience.  My early life included growing up in a small rural community in New Zealand, nurturing strong connections to European heritage.  Later I lived and working in large cities all over the world. I have travelled extensively through many continents. One of my most exhilarating life experiences was being a tour guide in Central and Eastern Europe for three years. This experience contributed significantly to the development of my people relatedness and leadership skills.
