My model of supervision is based on the Fa'asamoa of the Aiga (family), Aganuu (culture) and Atua (God) undertaken by principle-based of Fa'aaloalo (respect), Feagaiga (mutual relationship) and Alofa (love) driven by the Fa'asamoan gagana (language) of tautua (to serve) as the Samoan way of interaction.
I work full time as a registered social worker in a non-government organisation specialised in mental health and housing services characterised by diversity.
I have practical experiences in mental health, youth and social housing, and four years of experiences as a field placement supervisor for social work students at work and out in the community. I am also a full time student in a 2-year degree in the He Waka Hiringa Master of Applied Indigenous Knowledge at Te Wānanaga o Aotearoa. I work from an indigenous approach, and you are the centre.
I am bilingual (English and Samoa), passionate, and caring person who values your knowledge base, your space and your goals and dreams.
