No reira, ko tēnei te mihi 

 

Kia Ora ~ Te Tai Rawhiti born, Waikato raised, Te Tai Hauāuru nurtured, Kirikiriroa has once again become home for the past four years.  I am a Mum of three teenagers / young adults, and like to exercise the philosophy of ‘drawing out/enhancing what already exists’ whether this is in my personal or professional life. 

 

Working life has directed me in the field of group facilitation and training, however, I am currently working for my iwi Ngāti Hikairo as Claims Researcher. 

 

I can often be found supporting my waka of crazy children whether this involves driving, cooking or cheering duties. I enjoy empowering others to empower themselves.  

 

Mauri Ora!
