Born in Auckland to Scottish parents, Kirsten grew up with a rare appreciation of folk music, haggis and bagpipes. She joined us in the Bay with her husband, having already conquered both London and Auckland.
Her love of English and creativity led to studying Advertising at AUT, learning the trade from some of the industry greats. Once on the job Kirsten quickly realised she had a unique talent for juggling deadlines, while keeping calm – a quality that we’re excited to have here at WOODS.
Her career highlights to date include managing NZ Café of the Year, increasing travel to Australia by 10% for Tourism Australia, and working with loved New Zealand brands like Silver Fern Farms, Palmers and Resene
Kirsten is excited to become part of WOODS, using her content experience to help our clients grow, while also getting to sample to craft beers the regions becoming known for.
