Key NZ Dairy Careers Personnel
My name is Kat, I'm English born and bred but moved to New Zealand with my family when I turned 12, so I also consider myself a Kiwi.
I’ve been passionate about riding horses from a young age. Now, I’m lucky enough to have three of my own! Naturally, the love of horses led to a love of the country lifestyle
I have a beautiful daughter, a year and a half old, who loves the outdoors just as much as I do. We both tend to spend more time outdoors in the paddocks, sheds and barns than in the house!
I’ve always been interested in sustainable farming - dairy farming in particular. I started this journey with New Zealand Dairy Careers to support our local farmers and encourage young, aspiring international and local farmers to achieve their goals for a successful career in the dairy industry and ultimately match the two together.
This role allows me to meet many wonderful people - both farmers and students - and is extremely rewarding when there are smiles all around.
I was very lucky to travel a lot in my 20s, mostly throughout Europe, and see countless beautiful places and experience many different cultures. These experiences gave me a lot of insight into life on the other side of the world, and I enjoy connecting with and talking to prospective students about this. I am always up for a yarn!
