Anna qualified as a Primary School teacher and worked in schools around the Manawatu & Rangitikei districts, until she took employment within the New Zealand Defence Force, working initially as the Education Officer at the New Zealand Army Museum, Waiouru.  Anna continuing to work within the education sector of the NZDF, including instruction in administration and information technology. 

Anna & Wayne moved around to fulfill various NZDF roles which included relocating to Waiouru, Christchurch and Palmerston North throughout this stage of their careers.  While owning investment properties in the Manawatu, and through trying to complete maintenance and renovation work remotely from their Christchurch & Waiouru locations, they saw an opportunity for a specialised renovation design & build company. They found an online advertisement for Refresh Renovations, and after looking into the opportunity decided to set up the Refresh Manawatu branch in 2012.  

Anna & Wayne love the Manawatu as a great place to raise a family and to enjoy the best of rural and city living.
