My areas of interest and experience include working along side people with disabilities to support them to have a voice, which gives them the courage to ensure that they can live the best life they can.

I am a Kiwi who has lived in Auckland all my life. I had a treatment injury in 2017 resulting in being permanently paralysed (T6), learning to live with pain, fatigue and other ongoing health issues, whilst also achieving returning to work and learning to live my “new normal”. 

I have worked as a public servant for over 10 years.  

I am passionate about empowering people to achieve their goals . . . whether it be in the form of employment, gaining their entitlements from government agencies and/or simply enjoying their daily lives.  

I enjoy gardening, baking and cooking, I totally love the process of growing and then creating a meal to share with friends and whanau.  

I camp, I swim, I love to laugh and spend time with others but also enjoy snuggles with my two pugs.
