I have a background in education and was a teacher for many years in South Africa as well as here in New Zealand.
Due to life’s curve balls, I found myself working in the mental health and addiction sector. I have had the privilege of working in a variety of roles, where I have supported people from all walks of life. I have a passion for people and am so grateful that in my mahi I am presented with so many opportunities to break down stigma and discrimination in the sector.
No two days are the same in this field, which gives me the opportunity to learn, grow, make a difference and have fun.
When I am not working, you will find me fishing, spending time with my amazing family, or watching something on Netflix.
