I have been involved with the Insurance and Investment industry for over 30 years. We have a strong reputation throughout the community which we have grown over time with the help of client recommendations. I take a personal approach and normally hold face-to-face meetings with each client. I have my full Level 5 qualifications and can assist all your insurance, kiwiSaver and investment needs.

I will endeavour to provide you with the best peace of mind that when you need it, you have the support you need all for a cost that is affordable for your individual situation.

I am a long time Queenstown local with 12 years in the Insurance & Investment Industry. I pride myself on providing client with that personal touch and making sure everyone and everything is taken care of to make your insurance and investment experience as easy as possible. From helping with a health claim, to advice on the best KiwiSaver for you or you have the best cover for your family, I can help you. When I am not working, I’m spending time with my young family and our Dachshund Loki on adventures or enjoying a round of golf at our local club.

Michaela Woolmer

Assistant / Adviser

My focus is building strong relationships with clients and maintaining open and honest communication. I am passionate about providing security for what matters the most and would love to help with your insurance and investment needs. In my personal time I make the most of the outdoor lifestyle Queenstown has to offer, from snowboarding in the winter, to cycling in the summer and everything else in between.
