Hi, my name is Gabrielle Keen (Gabby). I have had the privilege of working for Zest as a Retail Store Assistant for almost 7 years.

Recently I moved from Marton to Whanganui. I live with my two cats and dog Mollie who is a much loved and valued volunteer at the shop.

The youngest of nine children I grew up in Palmerston North attending Catholic schools. I have three adult children and 5 grandchildren.

For most of my working life, I have been self-employed owning/operating a hairdressing salon, mobile dog wash, boarding kennels, secondhand shop and most recently a cattery. I have also worked in hospitality and retail.

For 30 years I bred and showed pedigree Labradors and Border Terriers.

My interests include animals, nature, gardening, cooking and photography
