Brad is the Executive Assistant Manager at Millennium Hotel & Resort Manuels Taupō , so he looks after the day to day running of the hotel. Originally from Stratford, Taranaki, Brad moved to Taupō 9 years ago after he finished studying. Outside of work he enjoys playing golf, travelling and forever hoping that next year will be the Warriors year!
Brad says “I have decided to enter as I would love to be able to help to raise funds for the Life Education Trust, and to throw myself into something completely outside of my comfort zone. I hope to learn some dancing skills so that our first dance at our wedding in February won’t be a complete flop!”
In her professional life, Michelle is a Chartered Accountant and one of the Directors of Strettons. In her personal life she is mum to two gorgeous girls, Charlotte and Emily, and wife to Andrew.
In the weekends when she’s not supporting the girls with their dance, she enjoys getting outdoors and enjoying the local area. To relax she likes to read and won’t say no to a good glass of wine.
Michelle says “I’ve decided to do this to get out of my comfort zone. I’ve danced before, but only in big groups and not this style of dance. Also part of wanting to be involved is the charity that is going to benefit from the event. Having two school aged children, I’ve seen the work that Life Education Trust does in our community and the valuable contribution they provide to our children’s education.”
