I was born in Porirua and after my education returned to live and work in Porirua.  This is my home and where my heart is. I have extensive management, planning and project implementation experience.  I have trustee governance experience and enjoy using my skills to add value to our community and young people.
I know that our young people are our future and I want to support them to have every opportunity to reach their potential and have positive experiences in life.

I am strongly committed to working with others to address causes of inequity by creating opportunities for communities of Porirua to voice their concerns. I previously chaired the SHINE Porirua Education Initiative, and continue to advocate for better solutions in health and education.
