Meet the Team

We are proud of our talented team, which includes the following members.

Ian Anderson

Chief Executive

Ian co-founded Streamliners with Emma Harding in 2000 to provide content development and web publishing services to a range of different industries, and with a strong focus on the health sector. Ian’s previous background included fifteen years in senior corporate planning roles in the health, housing, electricity, and banking sectors. He has a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Canterbury University. 

In 2007 Streamliners partnered with Canterbury District Health Board to develop HealthPathways which has since developed into the internationally successful HealthPathways Community. Ian is also a director of SchoolDocs Ltd and GPDocs Ltd. Ian considers himself lucky to be supporting industries that aim to improve the health and well-being of large populations, and to be working with people who are passionate about what they do.

Emma Harding

Manager, Writing Quality and Base HealthPathways

Emma has been a technical communicator since 1989, and she has written plain English policies and procedures in industry sectors such as health, manufacturing, retail sales, technology, banking, and software. She fell in love with single-sourcing as soon as she heard of it at a TechCommNZ conference in 2000, and has been using and teaching this methodology ever since.

Emma is a past President and current Christchurch Branch Coordinator of the Technical Communicators Association of New Zealand (TechCommNZ). She is also working behind the scenes to have the Graduate Diploma in Information Design (Ara Institute) reinstated. She has a BA (Hons) from the University of Canterbury where she majored in English. In those days you couldn't fill your honours course with linguistics papers so she had to top it up with Anglo-Saxon and bawdy Chaucerian verse.

Fran Cook

Content Developer / Writer

Francesca inhaled a University of Canterbury BA in Linguistics, French and Latin, washed it down with a Masters in Translation at UNSW, and polished off a Certificate in Professional Editing during a mid-semester break. She then secured a translation internship at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which formed a gateway to ten years of exciting work and city-trips across Europe.

Following the arrival of two gorgeous sons in Amsterdam, she abruptly informed husband Carl that it was time to go home—where there are grandparent babysitters.

She joined the Corporate Docs team at Streamliners in May 2018, and firmly feels she has found her tribe.

Tom Doudney

HealthPathways Lead Writer

Tom has been working in journalism for the last seven years for a company originally called Mainland Press which morphed into Star Media by the time he finished. If you’ve read The Star, Selwyn Times, or Star.kiwi in the last few years, you may have seen some of his work.

Outside of work, he likes to stay active by playing touch rugby and going for lots of walks. He enjoys reading about anthropology, history, and current events, as well as social and environmental issues, and has had a long-standing interest in permaculture which he would like to pursue more seriously one day.

He's keen for a good board game when he gets the chance and likes anything from more strategy orientated ones like Risk, Carcesonne and Smallworld to more light hearted games such as Balderdash and Pictionary.

Sarah Dreyer

HealthPathways Writer, Specialty Lead - Operational Quality

Sarah left the freelancing life in September 2015 to join the Streamliners team, and hasn't looked back since.

In the weekends, you can find her with a cup of tea, a really good sci fi book, and a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door.

Sarah has a BA (Hons) from Victoria University, which she filled almost exclusively with the delights of language.

Maggie Duncan

HealthPathways Writer

Maggie has a Master of Arts with First Class Honours in English Literature and Psycholinguistics, and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Linguistics.

After half of a PhD analysing fiction writers who could subvert the ideological assumptions embedded in the English language much better that she ever could, she decided to broaden her life education and expand her horizons, and took off with a backpack and a one way air ticket.

She gained 20 years experience teaching the English Language in Europe, North Africa, and Asia, and examining IELTS writing and speaking for the British Council and Australian education institutions based in Asia (ACET, RMIT University and IDP Australia).

After returning to Christchurch and while trying to decide where to go next, Maggie was manipulated by a little black rescue cat, and has finally had to settle down.

Louisa started with Streamliners in August 2013 after a couple of decades writing for international publishing houses Thomson Reuters and Wolters Kluwer. Louisa has specialist knowledge of occupational health and safety and employment law, but tries not to ruin parties by waxing lyrical about asbestos exposure and confined space safety, or asking what does good faith really mean?

She has a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Studies from the UK, the NEBOSH Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, and Canterbury University's Certificate of Proficiency in Employment Law (NZ).

David Palmer

HealthPathways Writer

My employment history is a progression of spasmodic lurches from one career path to another, due to many redundancies in times of economic downturn and an adventurous disposition. Having always wanted to be a writer, along the way I developed the necessary skill by the old fashioned method of simply writing - a lot - and harassing editors with unsolicited manuscripts and learning to cope with rejection, until one muttered a begrudging "Maybe" and I became a freelance writer.

After a decade of journalism and three books published I realised the most valued writers are technical writers, so I became one. After another redundancy I decided to try something new and join a company in growth mode, thus Streamliners.

My interests are learning (it doesn't matter what, I can't help myself), history, spirituality, ideas, words, numbers, music, and writing stuff.

Esther Schwartfeger

Accounts Administrator

Esther joined Streamliners in October 2016 after working in administration all her life for companies including Software Studio/Wincounter, Acclipse and Ensigne.

Her very first job after finishing school was doing accounts at Placemakers Rangiora, then Riccarton, so she also knows what sizes sheets of gib board and plywood come in, what trusses are, and the difference between jolt head and flat head nails, galvanised and steel!

She has been married to Nathan for 3 years and they have a blended family with 5 kids between them, 3 of which are married and their first grandchild, Olly, who is 14 months old and adorable.

Esther loves entertaining and eating out, gardening, nature walks, movies and homicide novels... in another life she would have been a Detective Inspector catching the bad guys!

Her favourite holiday would be somewhere tropical, lying by the pool, reading and swimming, enjoying cheese and crackers and a chilled glass of wine.

Senior Communications Advisor

Katerina has many years’ experience in communications and marketing, gained in several different sectors. Some of her diverse previous roles have included working at Parliament, selling and marketing telecommunications services, promoting New Zealand offshore, running a rural broadband company, running her own business and most recently, working in the charitable social services sector.

Katerina enjoys connecting through words, and connecting with interesting people. In her spare time she likes spending time in nature, particularly in the company of like minded animals, and humans as long as they can walk at a decent pace for at least an hour without complaining. Katerina has two daughters and four fur babies. She is learning how to be a vegan and enjoys mucking around in the kitchen, especially when this goes along with either good conversation or an interesting podcast. She also enjoys DIY projects, again even better when accompanied by either a good chat or a thought provoking podcast.

Katerina has a Bachelor’s Degree from Otago University and one day would like to study more French, German, Russian, linguistics and history, once all the DIY and craft projects on the rather long list have been completed. In her current role in the Capability and Communications team, Katerina enjoys working across several platforms to spread the word about HealthPathways and other amazing work done by wonderful and clever Streamliners people.

Liz Van Halewyn

HealthPathways Writer

At age seven Liz won the school spelling trophy, even beating the 12-year-olds.

She took a while to get there however, spending many years teaching in the Early Childhood sector first.

Liz is excited to be a part of the HealthPathways team because she gets to combine her love of writing with her interest in health and human biology.
