The Kaipatiki Project team is very pleased to welcome Janet Cole as our new manager.
Janet brings to us a significant set of skills and knowledge in restoration and community environmental project management, coupled with proven organisational success working in these areas and wider community development.
Having worked in both Council and the community, and run her own consultancy, Janet is all about collaborative approaches to solving problems. She also knows how important it is to be focused on outcomes and impacts to make sure we continue to make meaningful change.
Janet’s start is actually more of a come-back, ” I grew up in Beach Haven, so I feel a real connection to the Kaipatiki area. I am really excited about being able to return here and get back involved with the local community”.
Under Janet’s leadership, Kaipatiki Project will continue to be actively involved in restoration work, will extend its range of educational courses and will continue to help the community find ways to live more sustainably.
