Hey I’m Ashlee, an Aussie that fell in love with the charm of New Zealand and moved over here in December 2018. 

I moved around Australia a lot of my adult life working in Administrative roles. That was until I found a job working in dog kennels and realised this was the career I was looking for. 3 years later and a move to New Zealand I knew that I needed to get working with dogs again which is when I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to join the Barkley Manor team as of March 2019.

Working with animals is definitely the career for me. They say, “Do something you love and you won’t work a day in your life.” And I am. Each day I enjoy learning about each of the dogs, their different personalities and quirks. I hope to expand my knowledge of ‘mans best friend’ and build on the skills I’ve developed so far.
