Starting Pāpāmoa Post is the realisation of a dream for Ellen Irvine, who has spent the last 20 years as a storyteller. Ellen has 15 years’ experience as a journalist working on daily and Sunday newspapers around New Zealand, including the Bay of Plenty Times and Dominion Post. She’s also helped local and national businesses tell their stories during five years at one of Tauranga’s top public relations and marketing agencies.

A proud Pāpāmoa resident of 12 years, Ellen is passionate about this community – the best place in New Zealand to raise a family. When she’s not working, you’ll find Ellen doing the school run at Golden Sands, at the beach, walking the Pāpāmoa Hills, or supporting her daughter at various activities including at our local Pāpāmoa Junior Surf, athletics, tennis and soccer clubs.
