Outside of Govett Quilliam

Originally from Wellington and having studied in Dunedin, Anya is proud to call the beautiful Taranaki region home. Anya has a keen interest in all things culinary. Outside the office, she will be found entertaining friends or family and trying out the local eateries with her partner. The remaining portion of her spare time she dedicates to keeping active and travelling.

I cannot express my thanks enough to Anya. Her time, professional support and kindness was very much appreciated during a time that was quite foreign to me. All I can say is I’m pleased I made the decision to make that initial call to Govett Quilliam.
