NZ Life & Leisure - - Contributors -

Past: New Zealand- born Kelly – our new ad­ver­tis­ing sales man­ager – grew up on Queens­land’s Gold Coast. Mov­ing back to Auck­land 20 years ago, she started her ca­reer in ad­ver­tis­ing me­dia, and has now cov­ered print, ra­dio and dig­i­tal. Present: A grow­ing in­ter­est in gar­den­ing has Kelly try­ing to grow a range of fruit trees, in­clud­ing cit­rus, fei­joa, macadamias and grapes, and so far her ef­forts have been re­warded. Kelly has a love of an­i­mals, none more than her six-year- old blue heeler Ban­dit, who chose her when he was just three days old and has been her trusty side­kick ever since. Ban­dit spends his days run­ning fi elds, swim­ming lakes and play­ing with his pals at coun­try club, while week­ends for the pair are spent re­lax­ing, en­joy­ing good food and spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends. Fu­ture: Kelly is look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­ni­ties that lay ahead in her new role, meet­ing new and in­ter­est­ing peo­ple, and see­ing more of New Zealand. Ban­dit hopes to be in­cluded in some of th­ese ad­ven­tures.
