Rebecca grew up in Upper Hutt and moved to Palmerston North to complete a Bachelor of Communications at Massey University. After a year in the students association, MUSA, Rebecca moved to Wellington to work as a Learning and Development Consultant. After being made redundant Rebecca tried teacher’s college and when that didn’t work out she moved back to Palmerston North. Rebecca volunteered for a couple of organisations while looking for employment and it was during this time that the idea for Just Zilch came up. After nine months of planning with a small team Rebecca found herself to be the founder of this now successful organisation.
