and her partner Kevin.
Please RSVP to Graham Oliver with numbers by

Please note board members will meet with Gillian at 5pm

Gillian grew up in the Wairarapa, in Dalefield - a small dairy farming area just out of Carterton. After attended local primary and secondary schools, she then left the relative security of a small rural community and moved to Wellington to train at Wellington Teacher’s College as a primary teacher. She taught in Wellington, then married and, through work opportunities, travelled to Sydney, then to London, enjoying the proximity of Europe for adventures.

She returned to New Zealand and, with two young daughters, continued to study, completing a B Ed, then a M Ed and a post graduate Certificate in Counselling.
She specialises in Career and Leadership coaching and change management, working with government agencies and corporates.

At the same time as changing her career direction she met her husband Kevin Prestney and, after enjoying apartment living in Wellington for several years, moved back to the Wairarapa, now calling Greytown their home.
Between them they have four successful adult children of whom they are very proud and five gorgeous grandchildren.
Gillian became a Rotarian in 2003. She was President of the Rotary Club of Harbour City in 2006 and Assistant District Governor of Wellington Cluster 2 in 2009 -10.
She joined the Rotary Club of Wellington in 2014. She has held Director roles and for the last two years has been the Co-Chair of RLI for District 9940.
She is honoured to have the opportunity to serve as District Governor and she and Kevin are looking forward to the new perspectives the next few years will deliver.
