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 employment, gaining their entitlements from agencies and/or simply enjoying in their daily lives.  

I am avid gardener and love the process of growing and then creating a meal to share with friends.  

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