Kia ora, I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelors degree in Health Science, followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health and a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Informatics. I have worked briefly at Auckland DHB, and have done research projects since graduating. I look forward to working more toward the betterment of Maori health outcomes, and engaging more with our people.

I originally come from the beautiful Tairawhiti and living majority of my life in Flaxmere, Hastings. I love to travel home to my whanau, spend time with my two pepi and spending time cooking and baking together.
