Hi my name is Kirsty Ellison I was born and grew up on the beautiful Kapiti Coast north of Wellington in a small seaside town called Raumati Beach. After working in Wellington and moving to Auckland over 23 years ago, I have worked as a PA for Telecom’s National Property Manager, running my own successful business in the homewares industry, plus a whole lot more! I now live in vibrant Onehunga with my gorgeous family, Jason my partner and our two girls, 14 and 16 who go to Baradene College. I’m so proud of them and I love being their Mum. I have taken the Fast Forward Reading Programme for the last 7 years and more recently Q60. My work is rewarding and satisfying as I really enjoy seeing the students gain knowledge and confidence with their reading and writing. I love to spend time with my family, extended family vacations, our little dog Jake. Summers on Waiheke Island, where we have fun with family and friends and enjoy all the sea/walking track activities there are on offer.
