Karen Jefferson

In addition to handling the business management of Ahipara Luxury Travel, Karen will be running Lauderdale.  Trained in marketing, then spending some enjoyable years with publisher Dorling Kindersley in London and Moscow (as Managing Director), Karen has been focussed on the family since coming back to New Zealand.  As the children have grown, Karen has taken on more responsibility at Ahipara and now Lauderdale.  Her focus is on developing the property, particularly in terms of natural and organic foods.
