Bachelor of Laws and Arts from the University of Auckland
Anna has extensive experience in employment relations and dispute resolution, having led over 2000 mediations to resolution involving a broad range of issues. As a professional mediator, Anna has worked in a number of different jurisdictions including employment, commercial, human rights, sports, weathertight and tenancy.
Over recent years Anna has specialised in the more complex conflicts that can arise within employment which are often difficult to define but have a significantly detrimental effect in the workplace such as bullying. Anna often works with large groups and is able to tailor her approach to fit the particular issues and people involved.
Anna also has significant experience assisting parties in collective bargaining and has been involved in some of New Zealand’s most high profile industrial relations disputes in recent history. Anna has mediated bargaining impasses across a number of different industries including transport, education, energy, retail and healthcare.
Anna has both a Bachelor of Laws and Arts from Auckland University and was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court in 2003 (although she does not hold a current practicing certificate). Anna has advanced mediation accreditation with LEADR (Lawyers Engaged in Alternative Dispute Resolution) and is also an accredited Conflict Coach, which enables her to work one on one with individuals to address issue of conflict and to develop conflict management processes.
Anna also designs and delivers a significant number of presentations and workshops for large conferences and for smaller teams.
Anna works across the range of services that we provide with a focus on advocacy in Collective Bargaining, Investigations and developing the Mediation practice for Three60 Consult.
