Kia ora, I’m Krystal. Outside of the Design team, we’re raising two kids, Lincoln 3 years old and Olivia 5 years old. Sometimes they eat Oreos for breakfast, so there’s no judgement from me. I’m here to listen or help you find the right people to get you back on track. Noho ora mai rā.

Hi, I’m Jacqui. I know how hard life can be sometimes, and I know how much easier it is if you are able to talk to someone about stuff. I believe in kindness, no judgement and getting things done by looking forward and not back. ⏭️

I cherish a good quote – love a good laugh and pride myself in being an expert collector of precious jewels called friends. I do my best to honour energy and firmly believe in seeing art in all things from breathwork to baking bread.

Kia ora I'm Amy. I'm a water engineer in the water assets team at WSP. I have been part of the team here for 2.5 years after graduating from University of Canterbury. I grew up in Porirua and moved back to Wellington after my 4 year uni stint down South. When I'm not out on site, designing pipes or chatting around the office you can find me kite surfing, surfing, skiing and eating, although I don't do as much of the first three as I would like to these days. I’m an avid baker and love sharing food and oversharing stories with people. 🍪🍰

Hi, I’m Celine! Well known for being named after Celine Dion, but not sharing her singing talent unfortunately.
I’m part of the Hub Team at Wellington Water. You’ll often see me at my desk taking calls from our customers, client councils and crew. If I’m not there, I’m most likely taking a nice nap in our lovely Wellbeing Room.
I’m currently on my own mental health journey to improve how I manage my anxiety. This involves challenging myself to get out in the sunshine whenever I can, keeping myself hydrated throughout the day, getting my body moving, and getting a good night's sleep.
Outside of work I enjoy training at the gym, catching up with friends, op shopping, finding new food spots and going to gigs. 🌷
If you’re around the Petone Office, come by and say hi :)

Outside of work you’ll find me in the outdoors; walking, tramping and skiing or when the weather’s not so great cuddling my two cats, cooking a new recipe or practicing yoga. ⛰🐈👩🏻🍳🧘🏻♀️

Kia ora! I'm Karen, originally from Brazil, but I've been calling NZ home for the past 6 years. I work as an environmental engineer and sustainability enthusiast. I have a strong passion for both listening to and sharing great stories and if those stories come with a cup of coffee, count me in! Being the true Brazilian that I am, I adore spending my time at the beach. So, if it's a sunny summer day, you'll likely find me down at Oriental Bay, soaking it all in! 🏝🌊 🧘 🏖️ 🌈 🇧🇷 🇪🇸
