Business Development Manager & Owner
I started The Good P.A in April 2015 when realising my passion for business. I love process, being organised, people and business in general. Everything about business excites me - marketing, financials (I do love numbers), hiring staff.
"If you want to work with a business that wants to help you continue to grow the success of your business - that's us! I love seeing our clients happy in their businesses."
Community I am the Chair on the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce.
Experience I worked as a Personal Assistant in the Financial Services industry for four years, previous to that I worked in various administration positions which include being a Service Receptionist in the Motor Industry and a Purchasing Assistant for Holcim NZ. In 2016 I completed a certificate in bookkeeping with the The Career Academy.
Personally I LOVE my big extended family who live around the Waikato, I live in Te Awamutu with my son and partner. We enjoy doing up our house, cars and my quiet time includes reading & horse riding. I am driven and believe in positive action and would love to help you by giving you your time back to enjoy your business.

Experience Previous to starting with the Good P.A, I worked as an Insolvency Specialist in Brisbane Australia, for 5 years. I worked with both Australian and New Zealand companies and thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Before this I worked for Inland revenue for 5 years, in various roles, both in Hamilton and Auckland.
Personally I have recently returned home, from Brisbane Australia, with my 3 year old daughter Willow. We enjoy spending time outdoors gardening, at the beach, or just at the local parks. In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, or just relaxing in the sun.
Dressed on point - Rapunzel with hair so long - beautiful inside and out - Top communication & design skills
Experience I graduated from AUT University with a Certificate in Art and Design, followed by my Bachelor of Graphic Design. I moved to Australia with my partner and picked up a design job for a Sydney Magazine company. I moved on to start my own freelancing business where I specialised in communication design, focusing mainly on company identity and branding. After starting a family, I created a Social Media based company where I commissioned and also donated a lot of illustrative and custom artwork and design.
Personally I have recently moved home from Australia with my partner, Andrew and two beautiful girls, Harper and Ava. After spending six lovely years in Australia, I am filled with gratitude to have family and friends so close again. When I'm not with loved ones or renovating our home, I enjoy drawing, working out, watching documentaries and movies, cake decorating and cooking extravagant feasts.
Tangiwai started working with us in August 2019
Experience I hold a diploma in Accounting and a Bachelor of Business Analysis degree with a Major in Accounting, which is complemented with various accounts/office admin roles. I’ve also worked within the dairy farming industry for a few years, which has provided a variety in my work life.
Personally Any spare time I have is always spent outdoors with loved ones, guaranteed. You’ll find me deep in the bush hunting, or out on the water fishing. I’m a big-time backyard tourist, who loves to travel and explore.”
Payroll Administrator & Receptionist
Daryl-Lynn started working with us in October 2019
Experience Before moving to New Zealand, I worked for a company in South Africa for 14 years in two different roles. I was an office assistant for 10 years for a fuel and convenience store. I was then the Manageress of the convenience store for 4 years where I handled all aspects of the business.
Personally I am a mom of 3. And they definitely rule my world (and heart)! I enjoy sitting next to the sports field and cheering them on in everything they take on. Since my husband and I made the decision to move to New Zealand, the journey and exploring has become a weekend hobby for me and my family. Adventures, big or small, have my name written all over them!
VA & Bookkeeper
Belle started working with us in October 2019
Experience I was dairy farming with my husband for two years when I developed an allergy to cows and grass so had to rethink what I wanted to get out of life. I started working at Waikato Hospital as a Surgical Booking Clerk, and I later got into a Senior Management role that focused on Quality Assurance. After being in that role for about three and a half years, I decided I wanted to work a little closer to home and ended up here at The Good P.A!
Personally I am obsessed with my wee tot Spencer, who is an absolute character. He is the best thing since sliced bread, and amazes me every single day; and I guess my husband is pretty alright too. In our spare time, we are usually doing something to do with cars.
