Heidi Dunlop


Heidi completed a Bachelor of Business Studies at Massey University before using this to gain experience in business around New Zealand and internationally. After a few years in Edinburgh she decided she missed the sunshine and moved back to Hawke’s Bay where she runs a successful accounting business helping small businesses achieve their goals. Heidi believes in utilising your strengths and outsourcing what you are not good at to build the best structure with a supportive team and Toi Toi Recruitment naturally aligns with that for our community.


Tessa Flowers-Morrell

Tessa is from Hawkes Bay and has been in the childcare industry for over 15 years, mainly in OSCAR, ECE and programme facilitation in schools. Tessa has 4 wonderful children, who motivated her to begin her career in Childcare. She wanted to create a unique space where her children could be a part of her everyday world, a safe place for them to grow their minds, imagination, confidence and realise their potential. Tessa believes every child should be given these simple opportunities in life and understands the importance of having educators as passionate as we are teaching our kids.
