Kia ora. I am one of the Rachel’s that works in a supporting role for you, but in the library! I am the Liaison Librarian for Applied Science and Primary Industries, Centre for Languages, Hospitality and Sport Science. I have been at Wintec for three years and love seeing how the students grow and succeed in their studies. 

As a librarian, we can support you accessing all the resources at Wintec, whether they are books or e-resources. We love helping you with APA referencing, so please do come and see us or drop us an email if you need any help. 

I moved here three years ago with my family and we are embracing our new life … you can’t beat an early start for sport on a frosty Saturday morning in the winter. We all feel right at home here and love learning new things about the culture of New Zealand and getting out and about to see the amazing scenery. You are likely to find us down at Seddon Park watching the cricket in the summer.
