Neslyn is an inspiration for her ability to detect and develop the potential of everyone who is lucky enough to work with her as a colleague or to know her as a friend. As a mentor she is forthright but tactful, honest but kind. There are many health professionals now in leadership positions who owe her a debt of gratitude for the way in which she has brought out the very best in them. She is the most loyal of friends, generous to a fault, excellent company – and a great cook too.
