Growing up on a Southland dairy farm, it was only natural for Grace to be passionate about agriculture and the environment. With this strong rural background it's not surprising that Grace has a Bachelor of Environmental Management and Planning, (majoring in Water Science) from Lincoln University and has recently completed her Masters of Management in Agricultural Systems. As a Graduate Planner at Landpro Ltd, Grace is well qualified.
Before graduating Grace gained relevant work experience as an Assistant Planner for Selwyn District Council and at Fonterra in the Wastewater Treatment Plant and Environmental Team. These local, agricultural positions fit well with Grace's aspirations of working with and helping local farmers and land owners.
Young Farmers, tramping and Girl Guides (Grace has the Queen's Guide Award, New Zealand's highest Guiding award) are a few of the things Grace is interested in outside her role at Landpro Ltd - there is a strong outdoor/rural theme here!
