Btec National Diploma in Business, City & Guilds Adult Education Teachers’ Certificate
I am both proud and fortunate to have enjoyed a varied career to date both in the UK and here in the Waikato. I have worked as an administrator, lecturer, work experience coordinator and most recently media sales consultant. I have milked cows, ridden racehorses and throughout been a wife and a mum. Without doubt a common thread has been involvement with a wide variety of people and their differing lives. Many have had a story to tell; some have been hilarious, some shocking, some sad, some ordinary, some life changing but all unique. How wonderful to have the chance to meet new people and to listen to stories full of normality, laughter, tears, surprise and achievement.
I have often written for pleasure whether poetry, descriptive work or stories and so am excited to be a Writing Partner with the opportunity to record your story in a beautiful format, for yourself, friends and family ... forever.
A promise fulfilled
I completed a promise to my granddaughter, and have now left a legacy for my family. My book has a lovely standard of photographs.
Samantha was efficient and informative of each phase of production.

"Samantha was good to work with, and very professional. We particularly like the early history section of our book, and we think our grandchildren will benefit from reading our story."

My book is exactly me – it has made me think about my life and has been well designed with many memorable photos. I’ve been able to give the completed book to my family and friends and have received great feedback. Samantha was excellent and easy to work with.
