Your team of experts

Chantelle Good - Owner & Founder

" My favorite part about my job is the clients, the team at Varntige and everything in between. I’m passionate about business and everything it involves – management, HR, Cashlow & finances, marketing, innovation, software + the list goes on"

How long have you worked at Varntige? 
Since we opened the doors April 2015

Tell us a little background about you
Before starting Varntige in 2015 (previously The Good P.A) I worked in a variety of accounts and administration roles for 10 years, including being a PA to Financial Advisers, a Purchasing Assistant for Holcim, and a Claims Advisor in Christchurch during the 2011 earthquakes. 

Tell us about your life outside of work
I spend some volunteer hours chairing the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce. Outside of that I spend my time with family and friends, in the kitchen, eating and cooking equally, lol. After receiving a kidney transplant towards the end of 2019 (super blessed) I’ve spent a lot of time at the gym, I want to be the healthiest version I can be. I also got my motorbike license in 2020 and have been zooming around on my Yamaha R3 (which I’m loving). I’ve set myself a goal to do one BIG out of comfort zone thing a year from now until death do us part. My partner Grant and I have a son Kameron who is heading into teenage years and we spend winter Saturdays at his soccer games.  

What's an interesting fact about you?
I’ve never been out of NZ – crazy huh. Dialysis put a halt to travelling easily for me, got a kidney and along came Covid-19. But in all truth I’ve never had the travel bug. I’m a Kiwi who loves fresh farm air and can’t think of a better place to be than NZ. 

Daryl-Lynn Wilken - Bookkeeper & Payroll

"I love the variety of work we get to do! No day is the same."

How long have you worked at Varntige? 
I have been with Varntige since October 2019

A little background about you? 
I was an office administrator for a fuel station and then the manageress of the On-The-Go store at the same fuel station in South Africa for just over 14 years, where I was responsible for all the administration, payroll, stock controls and all day-to-day running of the business.

Life outside of work
I am a married Mum with 3 children, and most of my time is centered around my kids and their activities. 

An interesting fact about you
I have been living in New Zealand for just under 2 years now. And before moving here, I had never been on an aeroplane!

Leah White - Graphic Designer

"I eat, sleep breathe design! I studied at AUT and I have a degree in Graphic Design and a Certificate in Art and Design."

How long have you worked at Varntige?
I started in July 2018

What's your favourite part about your job?
The range of clients and industries I get to work with, no two days are the same! So whether it is problem solving for our clients, designing a start-up brand or tackling a new website, I am always on my toes.

Tell us about your life outside of work
I love all things active! If we are not bound to the house (with Firefighting partner on call) or at one of my daughter’s many dance classes, we are hiking, biking, fishing or swimming with our two beautiful girls. I love food, family and friends and spend most of my time surrounded by all three.

What's an interesting fact about you?
I have one Kiwi daughter and one Australian daughter! Both born in Australia and with the same father, but unless you have an Australian citizen parent you have to apply for a NZ citizenship (our eldest was born belonging to no country - crazy Australian laws!). My partner got his dual citizenship before our second was born so she got to be an Aussie 😂
