For those of you who have not yet met our new team members, we would like to introduce you to them now.
We have welcomed Penny Metcalfe as she takes up the National Support Administrator position. Penny is the first point of contact for general inquiries whilst managing the base administrative functions involving accounts, product orders and Board liaison.
Penny is a busy Mum of three and has always kept a stake in the sport/fitness realm, enjoying everything movement related – walking the dog, kicking a ball around with the kids, going for a run, hit of tennis, or doing pilates. Her gymnastics journey started at Hastings Gymnastics Club where she grew up. All her children did GFA and her daughter is currently a STEP 7 gymnast.
One of Penny’s highlights with us so far is sharing an office with Edward. We think she clearly has not been here long enough…
In recent weeks, we have also welcomed Jodie Allely to the Events team. Jodie is contracted specifically to help coordinate the 2019 NZ Gymnastics Championships administration, logistics and delivery.
Jodie is no stranger to gymnastics having competed and coached trampoline. Jodie also does acrobatics – silks, hoops and teeter board which she does in her spare time. She wanted to work with us to experience how the events that she has competed at, are organised and delivered.
Jodie has just been awarded a six month scholarship to study at Ollerup in Denmark, where she will pursue her trampoline and acrobatic interests.
