Leisa Hall - Practice Manager
In 1991 I started working for Michael O'Dea in his offices that were then located at 260 Hardy Street. My job was varied over the years but included wages, tax management, creditors, debtors, cashbooks, GST returns etc etc. I was employed by O'Dea & Co for seven years, leaving in 1998 to move to Australia.
While in Australia I decided to try something different and decided to train to be a croupier at Conrad Jupiter's Casino on the Gold Coast. This was an experience which I really enjoyed as not only was I working with numbers but it was very interesting dealing with people from all walks of life.
I moved back to New Zealand at the end of 2002, now with a child in tow. Bronte was born in 2001, followed by Lucus in 2003 and Lexi in 2005.
I have spent the last 10 years at home with my children and decided now that my youngest was at school it was time to re-enter the workforce. Ross very kindly took me on part-time and I am filling the role of practice manager. You will also find me on reception and answering the telephone.
In my spare time (when not refereeing children fighting), I enjoy reading, playing netball, tennis and enjoy a very active social life with my family and friends.
