About us

Lesley Sharon Sinton

Sharon was born and raised in Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty. She spent time living in both London and Dublin before returning to New Zealand to establish a ten-year career as an Immigration Officer with Immigration New Zealand.

While at Immigration New Zealand, Sharon processed and decided applications of all visa category types including some of the more complex visa categories. This enabled her to develop in-depth knowledge, experience, and insight into what is required for an application to be successful. 

Sharon, along with her husband and children returned to Whakatane in 2016 to pursue the family-friendly lifestyle the area has to offer. Moving on from her role as Immigration Officer, Sharon completed the Graduate Diploma in Immigration Advice to become a qualified licensed adviser.  She is now able to apply her considerable background knowledge and experience to assist migrants with all visa and immigration-related matters.
