I am a proud mother of 3 and grandmother of 6, have a loving family and in-laws, I enjoy people,
I enjoy socialising and also enjoy helping others.
During the three years that I worked at Katikati Physiotherapy, I was able to pursue some voluntary work as I only worked part time.
I teach English to new migrants and at present have 4 students, I also spend a few hours per week at the local primary school assisting in children's reading class. I enjoy people of all nations and my friends are of varied ethnicities.
A year ago I joined the local gym which is a huge step for me as I have never been interested in anything more physical than walking or dancing. Have applied myself and seen tremendous results both physically and mentally.
The clinic closed down at the end of November and I decided to retire. If I was able to win a job from home or a part time position close by I would seriously consider taking it.
I was born in Egypt of Jugoslav parents, we migrated to Australia when I was five and I grew up in the Snow Mountains. In our town there were 27 nations represented, that is how I got my love for all nationalities. My one joy apart from my husband and family was dancing, any type from folk to modern ballroom. My husband and I migrated to NZ when our youngest was a baby, and have lived in the Tauranga region ever since. I also am an avid reader and love gardening.
People Describe Me As
friendly, caring and a good cook
I'm Proud Of
I'm proud of my achievements in the work force as I applied myself to each new job, with enthusiasm. My various superiors recognised that I was keen to learn more and gave me opportunites to do so. My tenure with Hyclone was the pinnacle of my career, the reason I left there was because I was nearing retirment age and wanted to reduce my working hours.
The Way I Work
I am a teamplayer and believe that no task is too menial for me, I am also known as a good instructor and enjoy teaching my staff new skills to empower them to more interesting tasks. Once the team knows what our time frames for our end results are, I prefer to allow each one to complete their own tasks and I prefer to work unaided on mine.
I Specialise In
Office administration and accounts, I enjoy using MS Excel to an intermediate level, I used to enjoy creating databases with MS however have had 3 years absence from administrating any databases so would not be as confident, although prepared to give it a go.
I Would Be Perfect For
The small company who needs their accounting prepared and administered to the income tax level. Assisting in preparing budgets and forecasts.
Efficient, Honest, Polite, Persistent, Co-Operative
Even though I am retired, I like to keep busy, do have one day a week set aside for my ESOL students and feel I do have time to take on a small part time postion.
