About Jacqui

After growing up in Nelson, I spent six years studying in Dunedin (BA Communications Studies & Film & Media, BCom Management & Marketing, Master of Business in Management). From there I entered the World of Human Resources in Wellington, gaining 8 years’ experience in both Public and Private Sectors.

In November 2015, I shifted back to Nelson with my young family and Abel HR was established in February 2016.

It’s imperative that my business (recently re-launched as Proactive People Performance) is a unique, innovative, and proactive Human Resources Consultancy offering effective and tailored people-solutions for small businesses in particular.
