Facilitator - Addiction 101

I live in Ōtepoti/Dunedin with my partner and we have one daughter and two sons.  Living by the sea constantly nurtures my wellbeing.

My background training and experiences are mainly in the arts, education, addiction and mental health fields.  I love working alongside people supporting them to rediscover their strengths and encouraging holistic wellbeing.

Some of my passions and inspirations are art making, ongoing learning, being in nature, yoga, growing my own food, connecting with my whānau and my community.

It’s a privilege to be part of Blueprint as a co-facilitator. Providing a learning space where people can come together to share knowledge and ideas about how to support our communities through the journey of addiction and recovery. I enjoy meeting people from diverse backgrounds and sharing different world views.
