Let's get straight to the important stuff: I love batman and travelling, but dislike cigars. I am a natural leader, extremely organised, and I HATE losing (in anything, including kids games). I am a perfectionist, dreamer and artist. The perfect combination for a creative genius who consistently produces stunning pieces of work. I also have a fantastic sense of humour. 

As for the 'other' stuff: I have over 15 years experience in marketing and design, which started off in media and evolved into adult education. I am culturally competent being Samoan / English (born in NZ) and was involved in Maori education for 13 years. I have been a Graphic Designer, a Brand Manager and a Marketing and Communications Manager. I understand the importance of marketing in a business of any scale, and I know how to get results.

One year ago my hubby and I decided to move our wee family back to his home in Taupo. It was the perfect opportunity to get back into consultancy and I started trading under the 'House of Verona'. Personally, I find contracting much more exciting, and for my clients it offers a more affordable way to market and promote. There are no costly overheads, and services are tailored to fit individual needs and budgets. It's a win-win.

I didn't just fall into this career path - I chose it when I was 12 years old watching Eddie Murphy in Boomerang. It was my calling. For me, marketing, art direction, design etc. is not just a job but part of my existence.

Elsie De Wolfe said, "I will make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life". Ditto.
