Meet the Office

You might be surprised to know that the LIANZA office consists of three people - that's right, lucky number three. Here we are:

Executive Director 

Ana has a varied background in science, education and not-for-profit management.  She is excited about the future of libraries in the post-digital age, the importance of libraries to build community, and the vital role they play in social development and equity.  At LIANZA, Ana is chief-wrangler working alongside our committed Council and with the support of the rest of the LIANZA office team to deliver on business as usual and key projects. / 022 601 5542

Communications Advisor 

Helen has worked in many areas of the book trade over the last twenty-eight years including marketing and publicity, events management, project management, editing and bookselling. She can't think of a professional group more worthy of resepect and attention than librarians. Helen holds a Diploma in Publishing and a PhD in Creative Writing. She is also an award-winning poet published by VUP / 027 490 2682

Office & Design Manager 

Jess is our resident genius when it comes to admin and design. She brings mad skills from the Massey Design course and we look forward to seeing her apply them to Library Life (oh snap she already has and it's now the bomb). With a tonne of experience in customer service and management, Jess is always available to help! She loves a good green curry but eats weird snax at her desk. / 027 347 5326
