Ko Kathleen Petersen ahau                         

I am born and bred in Gisborne and have been living in Murihiku now for just over a year.
Professionally I have worked in Gisborne and around the Waikato for the past 10 years, working in Fonterra, Tetra Pak (NZ) Asia Pacific, Waikato District Health Board and Tairāwhiti District Health Board.
I am passionate about being in the outdoors and grew up out on the water fishing, water skiing, camping, tramping and then horse riding.
I love being in the bush and look forward to getting out there all-around Southland.

Working as the EA for the Project feels like a true honour and the job of a lifetime, as it combines my passion for the natural environment and supporting people, I look forward to the journey.
