Aja was born in Whakatane & completed her high school education here. Following her secondary schooling she worked in her father’s business, well known to many locals, Salt Air Surf and then moved overseas and worked in the hospitality industry. Her love of travel meant a 6 month sojourn in Europe after which she returned home and enjoyed time working at Ohope's Cadera Mexican Bar & Restaurant. Her positive attitude, work ethic, organisational skills and friendly nature were a great fit for a Reception & Letting Agent position mid 2018 with Professionals.
Aja enjoys numerous hobbies outside of her work, including surfing, swimming, running, cooking & gardening. She is also a great advocate for environmental awareness.
