Jenny started her career as a Landscape Architect for the largest landscape design-build company in New Zealand (Natural Habitats). After six years, she joined the Auckland Council Community Facilities team where she worked on a variety of projects as a Project Manager and Senior Project Manager for four years.
Recently, as a Senior Project Manager, Jenny managed a range of small and complex large scale ‘New Projects’, along with the majority of Playground Renewals and Upgrades, utilising knowledge from her Landscape Architectural background and extensive experience with Play Space design, implementation and knowledge of relevant guidelines and technical documentation.
I’m very motivated by knowing that the end results of projects that I deliver is going to have a positive impact on the end users. I love thinking about the details and then seeing the benefit that they add to the end output. Building relationships and expanding my knowledge on every single project that I work on is an amazing opportunity and keeps me coming back for more.
Outside of work, I really enjoy cycling, snowboarding and working around our property. Cycling provides fitness, fun, plenty of coffee stops and a great social circle, while snowboarding is a winter hobby which I love – you can’t beat a good day on the mountain! In regards to working around our property – my background is as a Landscape Architect, so I have a natural interest in improving our environment – whether it’s on a large scale or on a small residential scale at home!
