I have worked in the youth, not for profit and local government sector in the Waikato for almost 20 years, and love my work with young people and communities. I have strong engagement and communication skills, honed over many years of communications work within my roles, and volunteer work within my own hapu and iwi in Waikato and governance in a number of not for profit organisations, locally and nationally.
Like my youth work practice, I take a strength-based approach to supervision and kaitiakitanga, and look to highlight and acknowledge key strengths and approaches bought to our table. My model of kaitiakitanga is based on traditional healing practices, methodologies and whakapapa kōrero inspired by my own hapū and iwi. I am able to provide both supervision and kaitiakitanga to service providers.
I am available in person, phone or online, and would love to chat with you about what you require and how I can support you in your practice.
I look forward to talking with you about what you require and how I can walk with you on your journey. Ngā mihi ki a koe, Shannon.
