Ko te mihi tuatahi, ki tō tātou Matua i te rangi, nāna i homai, nāna i tango ngā mea katoa o tēnei ao. Ka tuku whakamoemiti, whakawhētai ki a ia i ngā wā katoa.
Ko te mihi tuarua, ki a tātou te hunga ora, e ngā mana, e ngā reo, Tēnā koutou, Tēnā koutou, Tēnā tātou katoa.
Ko Ngāi Tāne, ko Te Whānau a Takimoana ngā hapū i te taha o tōku Māmā.
Ko Wāhiao, ko Ngāti Rauhoto, ko Ngāti Raukawa ngā hapū i te taha o tōku Pāpā.
Ko Rose Heta-Minhinnick taku ingoa.
Toko ono āku tamariki.
Kei Waiuku tō mātou kāinga noho.
I am currently a full-time stay at home mum to my precious six children but have experience facilitating Wrap (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), Wellness Classes, Peer Employment Training and working as a Whānau Support Worker. I have lived experience of Addictions and Mental Health challenges and have a passion for working with people around Wellness, Mātauranga Māori and Advocacy Services.
I am privileged to be a part of Te Kete Pounamu and representing the voice of Māori in pursuit of better services, networking and Mauri Ora for the Tangata i whai i te ora me te whānau whānui hoki.
