I was once told by a wise women ” When you are working with whanau you meet them at their bus stop”. This one saying l always remember when l am working with whanua. This is the whanau’s journey and l am there to walk along side them while empowering and encouraging them along the way. I have a passion for helping people, I feel most rewarded when I see whanau achieve their goals. I enjoy being in such a whanau centred environment such as the Te Hau Awhiowhio o Otangarei Trust.
