Trina Newby

Practice Manager

Back to our team

Trina joined Markplan in April 2018 as Practice Manager, bringing with her a wealth of knowledge from 30-plus years’ experience in the administration and accounts areas. In 2015 Trina and her husband built their own 'forever’ home in the beautiful Millwater subdivision in Silverdale, so she is pleased her commute to work is now just a quick run down the motorway, Auckland traffic permitting!

Over the years Trina has been a keen volunteer for many different charities and she is currently an active member of a charity called….. wait for it… ‘Good Bitches Baking’! And that’s exactly what they do - they are a group of people who enjoy home-baking and offering their delicious wares to various charities. Their cakes and biscuits often go to people who have never in their lives tasted genuine home-baking – children who have been brought up on things in packets, or elderly folk who have no visitors and have almost forgotten how good home-baking tastes, it’s been so long.

Trina has two adult step-daughters and a granddaughter who are frequent visitors to their home, especially at meal-times or when they can sense that Trina may have produced a fresh batch of biscuits.

Trina and her husband enjoy Sunday drives in their 1978 MGBGT so you may just spot her on the road, scarf flying in the wind and maybe a glass of wine in her hand – hopefully not when she’s at the wheel!
