Hi my name is Christine and I live in Cass Bay, Banks Peninsula (20 Mins outside Christchurch) with my Husband, Lee our Daughter, Scarlett and Son, Sidney.
We moved to New Zealand in 2014 after Lee got Headhunted by an IT Company. Very quickly we fell in love with Christchurch and New Zealand which we now call home. I therefore know how it can be both rewarding, and daunting moving to a new country.
My family are all originally from the United Kingdom. My Children were aged 2 and 4 when we moved here. Initially we rented in Christchurch. However, when we couldn’t find our dream house to buy, we purchased a section (area of land) and went onto build our family home there a couple of years later… which was another experience!
The children both started at a Pre-school, then moved to ‘Kindi’ (Kindergarten) and now Primary School. So I have first-hand experience of schooling.
Before starting a Family, I worked for an airline for 11 years. This was a role that I thoroughly enjoyed that encompassed lots of the things I enjoy, travel, socialising, and meeting lots of new people.
Christchurch is a very unique and friendly city. The joys of Christchurch and the rebuild, as there is always something new to see. I look forward to meeting you and your family and showing you all Christchurch has to offer.
