Karyn developed Nor’west Arch in 2007, to allow her to utilise her business and marketing experience from home, while pursuing her ultimate love of skiing. After a few seasons at Mt Hutt, Karyn opened her first business, Methven Sports Massage Clinic, where she skied during the day, and ran the clinic in the evenings. A few years later she accepted the opportunity to become the marketing manager for Mt Hutt Ski Area, a position that would incorporate her knowledge of marketing with her passion for skiing. Her marketing position at Mt Hutt also encompassed racing and events, and Karyn is the organiser behind many popular Methven gatherings, such as the Peak to Pub Multisport Event and The Methven Scarecrow Trail.
Around 2005, she accepted a position at Mt Hutt Helicopters as Marketing and Business Development Manager where she remained for 2 years before the birth of Nor’west Arch.
Another role for Karyn is a volunteer role as national coordinator for avalanche dogs with Land SAR Search Dogs and as part of that position; is involved in the sponsorship, organisation of training of handlers and their dogs as well as liaising with other SAR groups and the NZ Police Dog Section.
Karyn is in her happiest place when building websites and creating designs to wow her clients. With 15 years of experience she knows just how to turn your business dreams into reality…
