Kia ora koutou. My name is Jonathan, I come from Napier on my fathers side and Fielding on my mothers side. I currently reside in Wellington and have been delivering cultural supervision for the past year and a half. I firmly believe in Te Ao Maori, Tikanga and the practices that compliment my beautiful culture. My background experience is mental health, addictions and recently started a new journey working with rangatahi and taiohi.
I understand the importance of cultural competency and the significant impact it has in our day to day mahi. I aspire to inspire using a holistic and inclusive approach.
