With 20+ years of dedication and experience in the Semiconductor Industry including Manager of Mitsubishi Electric Australia Semiconductors, I established Glyn Australia and New Zealand in 2003. The enjoyment of working in technology and providing solutions in the fast paced and innovative electronics sector in ANZ is what drives me to match our suppliers with our customers for mutual benefit. In my leisure time I relish spending time with my family, playing sports and providing opportunities to create life long memories for my kids.

 Having originally grown up in Africa via the UK, New Zealand has been my home for the last 15 years… but still no kiwi accent.  I have over 17 years within the industry and love the interaction with my customers and helping them grow their businesses.  I really enjoy Introducing people to new technology as well as being around innovative people who are developing cutting edge products with it.


Outside of office hours, with two kids, I have an active and busy family life. I am also hugely grateful that my wife is very tolerant of my mountain biking. In Christchurch, we have some awesome bike tracks and bike parks to go play on.

After spending number of years working in international companies in Italy and Holland, I ended up following my now husband to New Zealand 3 years ago. I joined Glyn in 2015 and I enjoy working in a small, close knit team. My role varies from accounting functions to administration and customer service. I work alongside Christine and together we are able to closely follow  both our New Zealand and Australian customers as well as our many international suppliers and customers.  Working at Glyn keeps me challenged on a daily basis and this is something that I really enjoy.

Having now worked for Glyn since the end of November 2017, I am the baby of the family.   I have experience working across a broad range of businesses and worked in accounts and office administration for many years.  It will come as no surprise therefore, that I work in the administration team alongside Christine and Roberta, and am focused on product handling and administration tasks.   With our focus on customer service we are a busy team.  I am enjoying the friendly office environment where nothing is too much trouble and everyone works together to accomplish tasks in the most efficient and timely manner.

I feel pleased to work on new technologies that will help to shape our world. Challenging the mind is always a path to finding new ways to improve. Nothing is more satisfying than assisting people in creating successful launching of their products. Though I spent most of my youth in New Zealand, I found a new home in Australia with my family. I enjoy the beach, decent food, soccer, gym and exploring new places.

Graduated with a B.Eng and an MBA…more to come? Maybe.
