North Waikato News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Af­ter three and a half years in com­mu­nity jour­nal­ism, it’s time to say goodbye with Fri­day be­ing my last day.

My jour­ney started at South Waikato News in Toko­roa fresh out of WINTEC. I had a lot to learn as a com­plete new­bie.

From there I moved onto moth­er­hood and then back into work at North Waikato News when my son was just five months old.

It was scary, nerve-rack­ing and ex­cit­ing.

The North Waikato has pro­vided me with some unique ex­pe­ri­ences and I’m grate­ful for that and all the sup­port­ive and won­der­ful peo­ple I’ve met along the way.

There’s been many peo­ple who have pos­i­tively im­pacted my view on the world, too many to name how­ever, but I just want you to know that you are the peo­ple that make this com­mu­nity spe­cial.

It’s been a blast - and now there are new ad­ven­tures to be had.
