Stacey has spent the past 10 years working in small to medium sized New Zealand service businesses, across industries and geographies.

Her approach to marketing and communications is to hone in on existing customers to understand how to reach new customers, and has deep experience in both finding new customers and delighting existing.

In her spare time you’ll find her supporting her builder husband as they renovate a 1920s bungalow. This usually means a little bit of painting and sanding, and a whole lot of cooking.
