My name is… Jordan Petrie

Job Title… Instructor

Original Country… I am a Kiwi born and bred in Kiwiland, just returned from America

Specialising in… Low Ropes, Archery and Flying Fox

Previous Experience… I grew up with a great love of all sports and in particular, tennis. I went through the New Zealand age groups and qualified within the top 10 of all under-17 tennis players in the country. I got a scholarship to study sports management at the University of Ottawa in Arizona and ASA College in Miami Florida and just returned to New Zealand to pursue a career in sports and education. Lakewood Lodge is a natural place for me to work and hone my sporting management prowess. I love to help people and make their day that little bit better.

Why I love Lakewood… I love working with children in particular and teaching them new things. It’s a joy to see that lightbulb moment of them learning a new activity. I really enjoy the sportiness of the lodge, being outdoors and having fun on the activities.
