Lynette Moore


Lynette brings an impressive 30+ years of experience in insurance across New Zealand and Australia to the team at Sherpa. As a broker, Lynette’s ability to gain an understanding of our clients’ needs means she’s able to assess their risks and ensure the best cover and premiums are obtained.

The trust and rapport Lynette builds through open communication has made possible a long record of happy and satisfied clients. Lynette’s wealth of industry knowledge, and experience owning and operating small businesses, means she knows better than most the importance of setting expectations and delivering on them when the time comes.

When she’s not expertly handling her clients’ insurance, Lynette’s out fishing or busy caring for her lifestyle block.
