Fiona grew up in a Farmstay on a sheep and beef property in Southern NZ, where is was the norm to always have guests around the dining table every day of her life. She has carried on the tradition and loves catering to guests, family and friends through her love of cooking.
Her other interests include running ultramarathon mountain races, gardening, swimming and exercising with her dog, Lee Lee.
She has a great knowledge of whats to offer in this region, having lived in Doubtful Sound, Stewart Island, worked on the Milford Track, and walked most of the trails in Fiordland.
