I have over 10 years experience in Hazardous Substance management and keep fully up to date with all the latest changes to the legislation. We are ready for the changes when they come in! For the past 5 years I have been Operations Manager at Envirocom, during this time I have streamlined many of the systems within the business to deliver a better service to our clients.

I also develop and maintain Envirocom's Online Approved Handler Renewal system as well as the rest of our website. This is currently in the process of being revamped.

I have a very broad range of somewhat odd skills as I am a fully qualified Chef. I worked at the Christchurch Casino and the Park Royal Hotel. After shifting to Australia I then went on to work in accounting and moved into IT where I discovered a natural talent for computers and all things IT. Returning back to New Zealand I designed several webistes for various companies and developed customer management databases and many other different business systems. I am currently working through a BAppMgt BIS at Otago Polytechnic.
