E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā kārangaranga maha o te motu. Tēnā tātou katoa.

My role is an Iwi Support Worker at Te Puna Hauora, working specifically with people who experience mental health issues. Having lived experience, and whānau who have also experienced mental health issues, I have developed a greater understanding of people who are in, or have been in similar situations.

I have a passion for Māori development. Recently I have been involved in the early planning stages to establish a local marae on the North Shore. Within the last year, I supported various schools on the North Shore to learn and carry out out tikanga practices. Tikanga Māori can bring greater cultural awareness and understanding.
