Melissa Slattery CA


Melissa was brought up on a dairy farm in Te Aroha and later moved to Canterbury with her husband Justin. While in the South Island they were named Sharemilkers / Farmers of the Year in 2015.

The pair returned to the Waikato to pursue their own farming goals on their 100-hectare dairy farm in Te Aroha.

She started working at Diprose Miller in 2004 and – somewhat uniquely – earned her CA qualification while working full time. With extensive knowledge of dairy farming and all things business, she offers practical knowledge for business growth and sustainability.

“I love being part of the community and I’m excited by the opportunity. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy working with a wide range of clients to build trusted relationships so together we can understand their business needs and help them achieve their goals.”

As well as combining her professional growth and development, Melissa has three boys – ranging from six months to six years of age – who enjoy taking her for a bike ride, swimming or camping.
