Jane joined the team at WK Strawbridge after completing a Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting from NMIT here in Nelson. She also has a Postgraduate Diploma in Viticulture & Oenology (with Distinction) from Lincoln University and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Otago.

Jane grew up in the winterless North but moved to the South Island to study and has lived in the South Island since other than a 4 year OE.  She spent nine years making wine in Central Otago but moved to Nelson in 2012 with her husband Todd and their two boys. 

She loves the climate, national parks, and beaches here in Nelson and is still involved in the Wine Industry as a board member of the Nelson Winegrowers Association. Her love of the local National Parks extends to Jane checking and clearing rodent traps for the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust in her spare time.

Jane’s goal is to become a Chartered Accountant and she is currently working towards this whilst working at WK Strawbridge.
