Angela de Jong
Hi, I am Angela de Jong and I have been the Franchise Owner of Driving Miss Daisy Manukau since 2014, a region that includes Manurewa North, Manukau City, Papatoetoe and parts of East Tamaki.
I was born and raised in Papatoetoe and continue to live here together with my husband Phil. We are very proud grandparents and now our home is filled with our two grown sons, their families, our cat Ricky and our dog Jess.
I grew up in a medical environment as my mother owned a private hospital in Papatoetoe and went on to work in the hospitality industry for most of my adult life. I have also worked as a volunteer with Victim Support and have been privileged to meet and help so many wonderful people at what is often the most traumatic times in their lives.
Driving Miss Daisy enables me to work with people in a caring way, and at the same time make a positive contribution and allow me to remain in our community. I love being part of offering such a fantastic service and the opportunity to add to the quality of people’s lives. Driving Miss Daisy gives me the opportunity to be out and about each day, serving the community and meeting new people from all walks of life.
I know how important it is to have safe, reliable transport for people who need that extra care. Driving Miss Daisy offers a unique and personalised service to anyone who isn’t able to drive themselves, so whether you need to get to an appointment, work, or just want to get out of the house for a while, give me a call and I will look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way I can.
