Thames got to me first, it took me a long and hard time to decide because my family was settled in Auckland. It was only when I joined the TSLHT that gave me the confidence to uproot my entire family and move here. The Life Stylers and my colleagues made me feel welcome, they embraced me and gave me that feeling that I am a part of a whanau. It is rare and almost impossible to be employed where going to work is positive, supportive and working alongside colleagues who foster a strong sense of security, dedication and family. I am happy and blessed to have made that big decision 6 months ago and for that I am grateful.
