Tell us a little about yourself.

My most recent role was as the Chief Executive of NZ Pork, an organisation which represents the pork industry in New Zealand. I’ve been extensively involved in local church and not-for-profits leadership and am excited to join the Kingdom Resources team where I can use my skills and experience in an organisation focused on bringing new skills, support, and hope to those who access its services.
