Here are a few comments from people Karen has helped on their journey to New Zealand.

Karen has been instrumental through the visa process and her continued help and support throughout has been amazing. From the very first contact to my actual approval has been made so easy with her help. I highly recommend her services as she truly is an angel for those who are trying to start a new life abroad. On numerous occasions she has gone more than an extra mile for this to be a success.  I am forever grateful for her assistance in securing my new life here in New Zealand! Thank you Karen!

“Karen was a god send at a stage in our visa application that was very stressful. Karen is very knowledgable and was more than happy to offer advice and provide assistance when we needed it. Karen put herself out on more than one occasion to help speed up the process, and was always at the end of email / phone. I can’t speak highly enough of the service available through Karen in what will probably be the biggest move of your life. I would not hesitate to use the services offered by Karen again, and would highly recommend her to anyone starting the immigration process. The knowledge that Karen can add is invaluable and takes away a lot of the stresses and strains. THANK YOU Karen”

“Karen Phillips was so helpful from the moment I met her the first time in India, she helped me with giving good advice about becoming an international student in New Zealand when I was in India. Finally when I was in NZ I had few troubles with the Immigration, because I was new to the country and had no Idea about the immigration services. So Karen Phillips was there to guide me as to where I could get help with the immigration services throughout my studies at Bay of Plenty Polytechnic, Tauranga, New Zealand. I would have been very happy to have her as my teacher and mentor again. I wish all the very best to her.”  AB

“Karen is very helpful and kind nature person. When I first met her in India, she guided me through all the process regarding the education as well as getting settled in New Zealand. There is lot of contribution of Karen towards setting up my successful career path in New Zealand. She has also given me the best possible suggestions and motivation towards my career in future. I found it very helpful while facing various challenges in my life.January 26, 2013″ LA

“One of the most important persons i’d thank, that helped me shape my career is Karen. She has guided me all the way long when i was in India until i finished my graduation. No matter what the problems were, studies, immigration, work, accommodation etc., she has always helped me until they were resolved. She has always helped me build connections through out the Polytechnic and other areas which would in future lead me to get projects / Job. Karen is really a soft hearted and helpful person and anyone in her company or taking her advice is sure to have better results.” AK

Karen has been a blessing for all the international students here in Tauranga, New Zealand. She has helped us to guide through various hurdles of life we face when we step into a country of people whom we have never met before. She has helped me to get my first job in NZ as International Student Mentor and has always been there to listen to me and guide through with best solutions.
Karen has also helped us in organising events for celebration of festivals like Diwali in NZ and also made us part of the culture by inviting us on christmas day at her house and making us feel like home. With the opportunities coming through the duration of studies she has also helped me to get a job as tutor and it was a really big experience for me to teach kiwi students here in NZ along with international students in one class.
With Karen’s experience in working with students and also holding such good position of Group Leader here in the BOP Polytechnic she has ability to understand the needs of a person when they migrate from their home countries to a new place. And with her being now an Immigration advisor it will be easy for many people to take her help and advise for Immigration to New Zealand.
We miss you here a lot Ma’am. God bless you with good health and prosperity. Abhishek Mehta
