International Director, Whangarei Girls' High School
From a young age, Katy has been passionate about growing and building – forts, connections, ideas, relationships, skills, vegetables, strategic plans, human capability, dreams, businesses and now global partnerships.
As a relative newcomer to international education and with a background in strategic communications and marketing, Katy is loving the unlimited potential that this permanently evolving and expanding industry offers. She is currently connected to international education through her roles as International Director at Whangarei Girls’ High School, SIEBA Board member and strategist for the Tai Tokerau Northland International Education Strategy.
For Katy, international education is all about partnerships – with and between students, their families, agents, schools, businesses and local and central Government – all with the vision to creating a world so connected that the next generation (including her own tribe of planet rangers) grow up as members of a genuine global community, with more opportunities than they ever dreamed possible.
