Jackie Van Stipriaan
The office just wouldn’t run as efficiently without this workhorse. Jackie has been employed by Vlatkovich & McGowan for more than 32 years. Some of this has been part time due to family commitments, but Jackie is still here and obviously has her finger on the office pulse constantly. She was appointed office manager from legal secretary because it was acknowledged by all that she excelled at telling us all what to do.
Her great love, besides her family, is netball and she has been an avid supporter of this game, every year travelling to Australia for Netball games. She is a life member at North Harbour after serving on various committees for 40 years, beginning at age 18. That’s dedication, a quality Jackie brings to everything she is involved in.
