Thank you. I don't mean to be annoying but is that how they sound over there in NZ?

no, NZ accent is like australian but not as strong.
Her accent is neither fish nor fowl. It's NZ and US mixed together. Maybe "mid-pacific" in the same way that there's a mid-Atlantic accent.
She's been living in the US for what 12 years (born 1994 and moved to the US at age 12) so there's some american in there and some NZ.
