The Welcome Newcomers Network would love you to join us!

Our Coordinator: Kari

Hello everyone!

My name is Kari Wratten-Lowe and I am the new Volunteer Coordinator for the Wellington Newcomers Network. In April of 2020 I moved to Wellington to begin my career as a young professional. I found that when I moved it was hard to meet other people to socialise with, especially due to Covid. Through my efforts to find a group to socialise with I found the Wellington Newcomers Network.

I volunteered for this position because I want to help people feel settled in Wellington and to have a network outside of work that they can socialise and have fun with.

I love to go for a hike or a casual walk along the water front. You can’t go wrong with a good wine or cider, but otherwise I’m a sucker for a good hot chocolate. I also enjoy checking out events in Wellington and trying out new places.

Thank you for checking the website out and I hope to see you soon.
