I have worked in various roles across both mental health and addiction services over the last decade. I now support various organisations acting as an independent consultant, facilitator and trainer.
A lot of my career has been involved in supporting lived experience initiatives such as DRIVE Consumer Direction, Te Kete Pounamu and Recovery College, working with various stakeholders and groups of people living with mental distress and substance use challenges.
I am passionate about creativity for wellbeing, and I support Tufuga Arts Trust in Counties Manukau. I am currently studying towards a Bachelor of Māori Visual Arts.
