Kelci Merrick

Communications Coordinator

Much of Kelci’s career has been spent working with not-for-profits both in the U.S.A and in New Zealand. In 2018 Kelci left her home in the United States to take up residency in New Zealand.

Kelci studied and certified as a Yoga teacher after she personally experienced physical, mental and spiritual healing through this ancient practice. She is very passionate about helping others find holistic wellness and values community connectedness and reciprocal ‘random’ acts of kindness which led her to the Volunteering sector.

Months ago, she accepted a Volunteer role at Volunteering Bay of Plenty’s head office and recently Kelci joined the team to fill a more permanent role, managing and coordinating our social media communications.

She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Counseling at the Bethlehem Tertiary Institute.
