Kathy Bardsley

Practice Manager

Kathy loves working with people and is fascinated by how a person’s confidence changes when they are in treatment and how they can see the difference to the appearance of their teeth.

Kathy and her family have a lifestyle block in Wainui, with a large garden. When not at the practice Kathy enjoys taking her dogs Jazz and Jake for walks, going for long bicycle rides around the Millwater estuary and having coffee at any of the great local cafes. Her favourite holiday destination is Thailand.

Kathy has recently returned to New Zealand since living in Samoa for 2 years and Australia for 18 months and feels very fortunate to be the new Practice Manager at Max + Beresford Orthodontists.
