With the GQ experience at the heart of our culture, Kirsten’s priorities for the team centre on enabling excellence, wellness and a work-life balance to create a happy, driven and dynamic team.
Professional development is a fundamental aspect of enabling our people to continue to learn and grow, and Kirsten ensures we have a varied and personalised professional development programme. Alongside this, she has put in place a new HR/CPD management and performance review platform to enable the team to digitally manage their personal documents and professional development and to enable an improved review process.
In addition to supporting and nurturing our team (and whether or not we have current vacancies), Kirsten is always interested in hearing from talented people looking to join our team.

Along with her husband, Kirsten manages the grant applications for Kahikatea Kindergarten.
With her young family, Kirsten enjoys discovering all that New Plymouth and the surrounding areas have to offer, and making the most of the outdoors and the sunshine. She loves attending her weekly Pilates class at Body Logic and, being an avid skier, is looking forward to testing out the local and national ski fields in the years to come.
