Marie has been part of the team here at Gaze Burt for thirteen years now, working in a variety of admin roles. Before joining us, she was a litigation secretary for a large city firm.
Marie (married to Ian) joined us when her children were young, “…and have always appreciated enormously how supportive Gaze Burt is of staff with children!”.
With her kids now in their 20s (still at home as they finish university), for the first time in 30 years Marie is not in a volunteer role! Her biggest volunteer roles and great passion is for education – firstly as a trustee at Albany Primary School, and then as a trustee on the Establishment BOT for Albany Senior High School. After the establishment phase she stayed on for a total of 10 years commitment (the last three years as Chairperson). It was a time of incredible personal growth for her and a huge honour to be a part of a team working with a mindset focused on the future of education in NZ.
Marie will often be the friendly voice on the end of the phone when you call our North Shore office.
