I have more than 20 years experience in the areas of Maori development, leadership, managerial proficiency, contractual capability and relationship management. I have worked within both the statutory and community sectors and believe my knowledge aligns closely to the parameters of what is required on this Board and to provide leadership.

I am committed to improving the wellbeing and economic status of Maori by making a positive contribution to ensure Whanau are well informed to make their own decisions.

Personal Interests: My two sons, three mokopuna, renovating houses and rugby league.

Community involvement: Board Chair of Te Hau Awhiowhio O Otangarei, Director for Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation, Member of Alliance Leadership Group with Northland District Health Board
