I am privileged to be part of a team that provides such valuable training throughout Aotearoa and am passionate about contributing towards reducing the effects of stigma and discrimination linked to addiction and mental health. Blueprint and Te Pou value diversity, inclusion, and an equitable society for all New Zealanders, which continually inspires and motivates me in my role.
Although I started my career in the corporate sector working in administration, facilities management, reception and events, I have spent the last 20 years working in roles that strengthen individuals and communities.
My favourite whakatauki is:
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.
