Meet the nzgirl team…


Jo Twyford

My role with nzgirl is… the editorial curator. Day to day you’ll find me writing articles, attending launches, curating blogger content, connecting with nzgirls via social media and our email newsletter, bringing to life our growing Bloggers Club and project managing new site developments. I’m your go-to for all things editorial on nzgirl.

My favourite part of my job is…  getting to do something I love with a great team. I have a passion for writing and really enjoy working closely with some of NZ’s top bloggers. It’s also cool to be able to connect with other nzgirls living here and overseas.

When I’m not at work, you can find me…  I love a good movie marathon, a night out in Ponsonby or enjoying a home cooked meal at home with the house mates.

My favourite #fullfatfriday treat is…  anything to do with cookie dough! These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles that Hannah makes are my absolute fave!      |      @Jo_Twyford      |      Linkedin


Rochelle Shaw
Digital Strategist 

My role with nzgirl is… As the Digital Strategist at nzgirl, I’m in charge of booking all the integrated marketing campaigns you see popping up on the site and looking for ways to develop the nzgirl business. My focus is to ensure we partner with brands that enhance and match the nzgirl personality whilst continuously delivering the best to our clients, their customers and our nzgirls.

My favourite part of my job is…  getting to work with, and be part of an amazing team of inspiring women.

When I’m not at work, you can find me…  hanging with my children, Sophie 5 & Cooper 2, family and friends. Most probably with a glass of wine in hand and chocolate nearby.

My favourite #fullfatfriday treat is…  all of them! Cookie dough truffles, caramel slice, cocktails etc etc      |      Twitter    |      Linkedin

Curator Assistant

My role with nzgirl is… Curator Assistant and general positive vibes and hype-up girl. I like to keep everyone in the office smiling while I assist Jo with writing content, sourcing and running comps, reporting on campaigns and scouring the bustling world of the Internet to find the best most uplifting affirmations (like this one).

My favourite part of my job is…  helping to bring the coolest content and trends to all of our nzgirls to help them feel fresh and fierce each and every day!  Plus I love being involved with a site that encourages women to encourage each other to be the best they can be and have fun while doing it.

When I’m not at work, you can find me… In a cinema catching the latest flicks; watching endless nerdy films and TV shows at home especially in the horror or sci-fi genre, watching plenty of NBA basketball games, devouring graphic and text novels, out seeing live music gigs, creating films and stories on my own and with my mates, getting out into the veggie and herb garden to create sustainability at home, getting distracted by my many pets, out getting fit walking in nature with my doggie, Nahla or blogging up a storm on my blog; One Take Kate, for, for nzgirl and Blogger’s Club. Yay!

My favourite #fullfatfriday treat is…  Hot Chips, fancy cheeses and very chocolately Ice Cream. Not together. Well…maybe!     |      @OneTakeKate    |      Linkedin
