Story Writer

Juliette loves dogs. She loves meeting people and hearing their stories too. Her first love is satisfied by her border collies Kenzie and Mac and her second by being our story teller.

Born and bred on a sheep farm Juliette had an idyllic upbringing with animals and the outdoors. Her work life has been varied and has included time spent selling New Zealand woollen blankets in Harrods and New Zealand wine in Paris and working as an ‘office lady’ in Tokyo.

Happily settled in Wanaka now, Juliette loves to be with friends, hike and be in nature, watch weird movies and read.

Being the writer of profiles of our volunteers means she gets to meet and hear the stories of the best people in the world and she tries hard to do them justice with her words.
