I have a varied professional career, Bank Manager, NZ Police, local government and the education sector.
However I have always had a passion for assisting people and our communities in whatever capacity I am able to contribute. I am involved in a number of community organisations at both management and governance levels. I am a life member of the Maori Womens Welfare League, which has instilled in me the values and principals of always helping others to achieve their goals. As a Justice of the Peace for over 10 years this role is all about helping the community. The vision for me is to empower people and communities in whatever capacity we can. If we all have the ability to help someone we should in whatever way we can, collectively and collaboratively this can be a powerful tool to positive communities.
