Ko Piraunui te maunga
Ko Waitotara te awa
Ko Aotea, ko Pahitonoa ngā waka
Ko Ngā Rauru te iwi
Ko Ngāti Pourua te hapū
Ko Takirau te marae
Ko Taranaki te rohe
Ko Eboni tōku ingoa
Tēnā koutou katoa, Talofa lava
I am of Māori and Samoan descent and I credit my whānau for modelling the importance of manaakitanga and service within our community. I believe it is those values that drive me in what I do and making a difference in people’s lives.
I am the programme coordinator for MH101. I have 17 years’ administration and organisational experience and previously worked for Capital Coast District Health Board and a number of corporate organisations overseas. My journey with Blueprint for Learning started back in 2013.
My passion for knowledge, being a mother and contributing towards supporting better mental health outcomes for all people, especially for Māori and Pasifika are some of things I enjoy doing every day. I feel very honoured to be a part of an awesome team who work within the mental health, addiction and disability sector and who are driven and passionate about making a positive influence in the lives of people in Aotearoa.
