Blair was born and raised in New Plymouth, Taranaki. She started a career in Viticulture when she made the move to Blenheim, Marlborough 10+ years ago. Blair has worked in various roles within the viticulture industry such as vineyard operator, technical supervisor and assistant vineyards manager. This eventually led her to Nelson where she was most recently managing a kiwifruit Block.
These roles have provided Blair with an abundance of practical and technical knowledge and problem-solving skills, which she can apply directly to her role as a horticultural consultant, helping growers to produce the best quality fruit. To compliment this, she is currently studying part-time and is committed to furthering her studies to keep her up to date with the newest research and technology, allowing her to advise growers to the best of her ability.
