I started working and providing supervision and coaching services full time in 2017 as an internal supervisor with the New Zealand Government. This was at Ara Poutama Aotearoa | The Department of Corrections inside the practice leadership team supporting probation officers in the community, and case managers in prisons. In this role I was primarily focused on the provision of individual and group supervision to support front line practitioners. Along the way I have completed numerous trainings, courses, and qualifications related to supervision, reflective practice, and coaching which have been provided internally by the Government.
In 2020 I commenced postgraduate studies at the University of Auckland in professional supervision to learn more about the field and to upskill and develop in my practice to better support the practitioners I work with. At present I have completed a postgraduate diploma in professional supervision.
I have a background as a youth worker and supervisor of group homes prior to moving to New Zealand and starting work in the Department of Corrections. I would love to offer my services to support youth workers.
