Pip Russell


Pip Russell
Assessment and Membership Coordinator

Pip has worked in the outdoor industry for over 15 years within NZ and overseas. From glacier guiding in her earlier years to the more recent contracts with Antarctica NZ and World Challenge, Pip calls herself a jack of all trades and master of none…but whatever the adventure, she’s in! Joining the NZOIA team has meant Pip has traded the pack and boots for a skirt and desk and while a bit of a shock initially, Pip is loving remaining connected to an industry she feels so passionately about while being in a completely new role. When she’s not in the office, she’s enjoying time at home in Golden Bay, hitting up the Rameka on her bike or the limestone cliffs and swimming holes of Paynes Ford.
