Samantha Sinclair

Statutory Admin and Administration Management

Samantha is the first fresh friendly face, and voice, that welcomes you at the front desk to Gilligan Sheppard. Samantha is a recent graduate from Victoria University of Wellington where she completed her Bachelor of Arts in English literature, theatre, and film. Prior to joining the corporate world, Samantha has worked in retail, hospitality, and farming industries. It is no wonder she makes a great receptionist, as she has always enjoyed applying her approachable nature and helping people wherever she can with the work she does.

Samantha enjoys the variety of things she learns every day at GS and working here has shown Samantha that there can be a quirky side to the chaos of the corporate world!

Being a newbie to the city, Samantha has loved slowly getting to know Auckland more and more, adventuring to different parts of the area whenever she gets the chance. Her favorite place so far is the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial at Bastion Point and the views of Rangitoto from Mission Bay. Next up on the ‘to see’ list is Waiheke Island.

Though she appreciates Auckland, she also looks forward to any excuse to head back to her hometown Dargaville to visit her family, including all six farm dogs and her Labrador Roxy (who thinks she’s a farm dog). Helping out on the farm has been a huge part of Samantha’s life, so it is fair to say, you can take the girl out of the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the girl.

When Samantha is not at work (or up north), you’ll find her curled up on the couch reading a book or binge watching tv shows and films. At the moment, The Office (US), Modern Family, and New Girl are the most popular at the flat! Samantha is currently stuck into The Block, and looking forward to Ozark season four!
