Ko Mākeo te maunga. Ko Waiaua te awa. Ko Omarumutu te marae. Ko Tutāmure te whare tipuna. Ko Hine-i-Kauia te wharekai. Ko Ngati Ruatakenga te hapū. Ko Whakatohea te iwi. I am a māmā of three children and have an open door for our whanau to ebb in and out as required. There is nothing like having a bustling whare full of energy, even if that mean endless dishes on the kitchen bench.

I am a passionate practitioner of contextual learning for our people. As a practitioner having only worked within the rural setting alongside our predominantly Maori communities, it is about knowing our community, knowing our learner and always operating from a strengthened based position.

I live to be outdoors nestled in the hills of the Raukumara ranges. Alongside my whanau you will almost always find us exploring within our local whenua hunting and harvesting wild kai.
