No reira,

Tena Koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.

I like to think of myself as a people’s person and that I have the ability to connect and get along with a diversity of people. I come from a Maori Croatian background with both cultures being very prominent on both sides of my whanau.

I am passionate about growing and learning as a person and as someone who contributes to the community. I’m passionate about building stable futures for children and their whanau, and can be a little overbearing with this at times.

I am ambitious and driven and thrive on the occasional challenge constantly setting goals for myself so I have something to strive towards and achieve, not only in my work but also for myself and my family.

I am really excited to have the opportunity to work alongside similar minded passionate people, doing what they can to grow opportunities for whanau within their community. I’m grateful to be a part of a Te Hau Awhiowhio O Otangarei Trust and look forward to the journey and my future within this organisation.
