Hi I’m Mandy!
I’m the face behind Veronica and Me Embroidery and Designs, the creator of the NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts Community and the NZ Manager for Echidna Sewing Supplies.
Most of my career has been focused on human behaviour and interaction. I studied Psychology and Criminology at university and all of my jobs have revolved around understanding people and why they do what they do. These skills have proved invaluable when it comes to navigating the waters of business networking and interactions.
After working in both the corporate and public sectors, I started my business after the birth of my first daughter Veronica. (Yes, she is named after Veronica Mars – my ultimate TV obsession!) It began as a venture with flexible hours to work from home while spending time with my children, but it also introduced to me to the machine embroidery community which helped take my passions to new heights.
I am a creative thinker who is always looking for a better way to do things. Not only does this help me when I try and take on too much (as I always do), but I love to provide suggestions and ideas to other business owners when they too are looking for a better way. I live in Auckland with my amazing husband Bruce and our two gorgeous daughters.
