Personal statement

On the weekends, you will find me coaching, managing, supporting and providing taxi services for my tamariki in their various sports including water polo, football, touch and netball. I also manage representative sports teams for Touch New Zealand, Touch Canterbury and the Canterbury Rugby Football Union. Most of my wider whānau live in Waitaha so I’m lucky to be able to catch
up with them frequently for various celebrations.
