With a background in travel and event management, Kalena Finlayson is looking forward to transferring some of these skills and her fondness for the St Paul's school community to her new role as the Collegians Executive Officer.
Taking over from Ginny Semmens in May, Kalena is excited to be a part of the St Paul's team. As a current parent, with son Blake Finlayson (Year 12) and daughter Hannah Finlayson (Harington 2019-2021), she is already entrenched in the school community. Kalena is also the current secretary of the St Paul's Rowing Club and runs her own travel company, Momento Group.
Born and bred in the Waikato until moving to Mount Maunganui as a teenager, Kalena returned to her Waikato roots in 2011, relocating her family to Hamilton from Tauranga.
As the new Collegians Executive Officer, Kalena is looking forward to meeting St Paul's Collegians at upcoming events now that we are able to gather again in person.
