State your attraction to the TV industry
Raised between New Zealand and Jersey, I landed back in Jersey in 2008. After seeking work experience at ITV Channel Television, I never left, and am currently a regional Weather Presenter + Advertising Executive for them. My work at CTV has quickly led to work in numerous other parts of the community: Jersey Tourism, charitable fundraising events, commercial presenting and regular stills work. I learn fast, am energetic, articulate, warm and come with a healthy dose of kiwi 'can do' attitude!
How do you relax?
I like to travel, either to the snow or the sunshine! Am very active in our sporting community ( Rowing, Mountain biking are firm favourites) and my partner and I also renovate houses together in our 'spare time' we currently have two projects on the go! )
-News & Current Affairs
-Travel & Tourism
-Health & Fitness
Love the outdoors and travelling. My partner and I redesign and renovate property which leaves a keen eye on the property market. Interest in most sports - the more extreme the better, and the nutrition and lifestyle which goes along with health and success. Loves the presenters ease of lifestyle and popular culture shows but if I could make documentaries for a living I'd be a equally happy lady!
