My background consists of working with children and families in various settings as a preschool nursery nurse, moving on to retrain as a social worker working with a social services agency then more training to work as a tertiary teacher of various Child Care courses. Moving to New Zealand 16 years ago I decided to up skill my cultural knowledge and completed my BSW.

Presently I offer external supervision, and also work as a therapist/counsellor under ACC sensitive claims working with women who have been sexually abused who can also have complex addiction and mental health issues.
