about me

"I am an administration professional, with more than 20 years' experience working in globally ranked universities across New Zealand, Italy, the UK and Australia." 

My career in administration began more than 20 years ago at the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand, enrolling students on distance learning diploma and degree courses, and my very first project was redesigning an application package for students applying for hardship grants.


​Since then, I have worked in globally ranked universities across New Zealand, Italy, the UK and Australia, and have coordinated many projects, including citizenship ceremonies, book launches, funding applications, international study tours, and orientation programs, to name just a few.​


In 2016, I shifted my focus to supporting local business owners with their day-to-day operations. I also support small businesses that may be exceptionally busy - but not quite ready take on an employee.

"Michelle is incredibly passionate about her work and has innate passion to just get on with things, quietly and without fuss. Recently I presented a challenge to Michelle in which I needed her expertise, with gusto it was accepted and delivered with outstanding results, reaching far beyond my expectations. Where my challenge exceeded her knowledge, without hesitation Michelle sought industry expertise and advice. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her brand grow and evolve, I feel she is now poised for only greater things."
