Kia ora, 

I can help tell your unique story. 

I am a motivated communications and public relations professional with experience in media, communications and public relations. 

I've spent 20+ years working for the Department of Conservation in Gisborne in various roles ranging from administration, to partnerships and working with communities.  As the communications lead I was able to share the stories of the conservation work happening in the region. 

Diplomas in Human Resources/ Public Relations and Communications 
Currently studying the Bachelor of Applied Science (Communications) 
Current PRINZ Practising Certificate 

I've always been passionate about history which prompted me to start my own Heritage Research and Writing business 'First Chapter.' My business vision is to communicate unique stories that are visible to people now and in the future. I work with community groups, government agencies, iwi and business to capture their stories. 

I particularly like a challenge and enjoy the opportunity to tell a story using the many different mediums that are available.  I'm keen to help spread the heritage stories of not only our region but the entire Aotearoa.

Nga mihi, Sandra
