Sarah Nelson

Office Manager


After moving from Wellington to Hawkes Bay in the autumn of 2008 I was gobsmacked by the enormous quantities of delicious juicy citrus, apples, peaches, feijoas and the endless, endless hot windless days ……. all of which were a rarity in the capital.

Within a month I started as a volunteer at the Art Deco Trust, which then became an employed role working in the retail arm with a large family of incredibly passionate inspiring volunteers. After 8½ years of working for the Trust an opportunity has arisen to join the HDT Hawkes Bay team as their Office Manager. I am thrilled and very excited to be a part of the company’s vision for delivering high quality innovative sustainable projects to our clients.

Outside of work I spend most of my time following my passion for fashion – which includes submitting entries to World of Wearable Arts and other NZ Fashion competitions. I also love listening to music, pottering in the garden and turning my hand at being an amateur interior designer.
