I grew up in Feilding where I attended Feilding High School and then went on to study at Massey University in Palmerston North. My partner and I moved to Turangarere 6 years ago to his family farm and since then I spent my working years in hospitality, reception, and accountancy, we have two baby boys Leo and Kobe.
My partner has whakapapa links to Ngāti Tamakōpiri through the Whale whānau, this has helped to develop my interest and understanding of the Mōkai Pātea Rohe and how Mōkai Pātea Services contributes as an organisation. I began the role as Mōkai Pātea Services’ Financial Administration Clerk in September 2017 and have loved the challenge of the role, the wide range of experiences I have been lucky to be involved in and the people I have met.
