Conny is the “permanent reliever” in the international office and offers a familiar friendly face to students and homestay families when other staff members are out of the office. Conny works in all areas of the Department; homestay, group tours and administration. She is originally from Germany and has travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Conny has lived in New Zealand for the past 30 years and moved to Kerikeri in 2000. She lives on a dairy farm just outside Kerikeri with her husband and two of their three children. The oldest is at Otago University in Dunedin and the two younger children are both at Kerikeri High School. Conny’s work experience is mainly in the travel industry. “My passion is travel and I love working with the international students and learning about their home countries, way of life and culture”.
