I am a graduate of the Anamata Suicide Intervention course delivered by Dr Candy Cookson-Cox and have benefited hugely from these learnings in my previous roles. I believe education to be a key component in ones' wellbeing, and am more than willing to promote this pathway for the benefit of my people.

I have been with Anamata coming up two years soon. I have had the privilege of studying with Anamata and completed the Dip in Kaupapa Māori Public Health - Whānau Violence L6 during 2021.

I bring with me experience in many office environments but what I gain from working here at Anamata; is so much more. 

I am not just apart of an organisation. I am apart of a whānau.

I was born and raised in Rūātoki and whakapapa to Te Whakatohea on my dads side.

I love being surrounded by whānau and am most at peace on my marae and when I am camping up Te Urewera River.

In addition to all that, I am the Business Support Officer and first point of contact for Anamata.
