Ko Hikurangi te maunga
Ko waiapu te awa
Ko Ngāti Porou tōku iwi
Tēnā koutou katoa e te whānau!
While I am a Gizzy girl at heart, Te Oko Horoi has now become the place that I warmly call home. I am married to Robin and together we have been blessed with 5 tamariki aged 13-18. My background is in education and I am passionate about challenging inequity, enticing engagement, and awakening potentiality.
I am hopeful of living in a community where manaakitanga is embedded into normal ways of being; where collective humanity in all its rich glory is valued and embraced.
I love my whānau, I love my community and I am grateful for the blessings around me.
