Ngāti Porou, Ngāpuhi, Tainui
Director Centre of Māori Suicide Prevention
I was born and raised in the heart of Ngāti Porou and have worked in the health and social service sector for over 15 years in both Aotearoa and Australia. Through my experience and working in the coal face of communities I know the strength and innovation that they hold and am a champion for whānau and community solutions. I have a passion for rangatahi and helping them to build their confidence so they can thrive. It’s this heart for our people that I bring to the role and drives me to do what I do.
