Jacalyn is originally from the UK, born on a Royal Navy Base in Ipswich. Jacalyn emigrated to New Zealand in 2000 with her Rotorua based Kiwi husband.
Started her career
Jacalyn worked at Crown Law in Wellington as the Practice Administrator for around four years, working alongside the Solicitor-General, Deputy Solicitor-Generals and Practice Manager. Wanting to have a more rural upbringing for their young family, and in search of “living the dream” Jacalyn was offered a position heading up a Medical Centre in beautiful Taupo. Jumping at the chance, Jacalyn and her family have never looked back. The opportunity to go back to Law and to lead the amazing team at Le Pine & Co was too good to be true and Jacalyn joined them in April 2013.
Arrived in Taupo
After living in Wellington for seven years, Jacalyn arrived in Taupo in 2007 to lead a busy Medical Centre for seven years prior to joining the Le Pine & Co team.
What does she enjoy about her work?
Jacalyn enjoys the people; being out in the community and helping the team to make a difference for clients.
Jacalyn is a member of the Waikato / Bay of Plenty Practice Manager's Group which enables her to keep a broad and evolving perspective on creating excellent law firms.
Things that capture her imagination
Being a Mum of two young boys, spending time outdoors exploring the amazing place we live in is a must at the weekends. In 2013 Jacalyn completed the Oxfam Trailwalker 100km walk and the training for that took her to places in the Taupo region she didn't even know existed. A keen keep-fit fanatic you can usually find her at the gym. Jacalyn also dables in acrylic painting, up-cycling old furniture and recently tried her hand at writing a children’s story book. She is also a member of the Taupo Taoist Tai Chi branch.
Jacalyn plays an active role on the Board of Trustees for Waipahihi School.
