Creative, Learner, Connector, Problem solver, Empath, Teacher, Mentor. Animal lover and plant-based foodie!

I have two favourite things about working in the youth sector:

Firstly I LOVE being centred in a community that is strengths-based and mana enhancing. I love that we teach one another how to be people-lifters rather than pushing one another down. We are one interdependent, interconnected human organism and together we rise and fall. Secondly I love the youth sector because of the young people! Aotearoa has some seriously cool taiohi and it is a real honour to meet them, mentor them, advocate for them, and be in their lives. I couldn’t ask for a better job.
