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. 🍪🍰

I’m a self confessing technology geek and there is no better feeling at work than seeing technology help or enhance our work rather than using tech for the sake of it. Outside work I love getting out and about with our dogs Albus and Severus and my involvement in various rainbow and community group.

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!
