Can we get a warm welcome for our new Community Events Manager - Abby Jones!
Abby was born and raised In Invercargill but spent every school holiday in Devonport with her Dad. She then moved permanently in 1996 and attended Takapuna Grammar school.
Abby’s career background is a mix of Hospitality, Film and Events. She managed successful bars and restaurants all over NZ and in Australia. She studied Event Management in Melbourne in 2004, which has allowed her to participate in many big event productions around NZ and has organised numerous music events for various top NZ artists, special events and corporate functions.
She subsequently joined the film industry and has since held many positions in Production, Craft Service and Art departments.
In 2012 Abby established Bette’s Bar & Eatery in Devonport and was the Managing Director of the business for five years.
Abby resides in Bayswater with her two children. She is an active member at Narrow neck Playcentre, her son attends Devonport Community Creche and her daughter attends Bayswater Primary School.
If there is one thing we have all learned from the last couple of years, it has to be how important our sense of community is in trying times. Abby looks forward to contributing to the Devonport community in a meaningful way.
