Leanne Rookes


Priding herself on her consistency and reliability, Leanne comes to the Savvy Squad with 12 plus years as a legal secretary and PA under her multi-talented belt. 

Highly organised and committed to quality, ‘precision’ could very well be Leanne’s middle name, as she thrives when asked to complete tasks that require her utmost focus and accuracy.

Originally hailing from Taranaki, Leanne now considers herself a Hutt local, having spent the last ten years here. Living with her partner, as well as a dog named Dougal, and two cats (Fat Gary and Geordie), when not busy with Savvy clients, Leanne enjoys taking road trips in their Chev van to see American car shows (no, not for the cars, just for the clothes and shoes!)

Trina Noda


Introducing... Trina! In addition to possessing more admin experience than you can shake a stick at, Trina brings invaluable organisational skills from her time working in operations coordination and management.

Using this high-level organisation and communication with Savvy clients, Trina is a scheduling whizz with exceptional customer service skills. Her eagle eye for the finer details means she is an excellent proof-reader, and our clients sing her praises for her ability to expertly coordinate their busy lives.

Trina has a strong work ethic and strives to be the best role model to her three children; showing them it is possible to work hard, play hard (you can find her on the netball court in her spare time), and maintain strong connections with family and friends.

Amanda Lockyer


With over 30 years working in a corporate, public sector environment, including five years as EA to Chief of Air Force for New Zealand Defence, and four years working in the NZ Government Ministerial Office, Amanda doesn't miss a beat. Highly trained and competent with almost anything 'admin' you can throw at her, we're pleased Amanda has decided to turn her rather skilled hands to the dynamic world of virtual assistance! 
Outside the corporate world, Amanda previously established and owned a popular café, so she loves quality food and wine (in particular, an excellent South Island Pinot Gris). Amanda is most comfortable being outdoors; describing herself as sporty, adventurous, and the sort of person who 'likes to get her hands dirty' with everything from driving tractors and swinging hammers, to landscaping!
