Professional profile

After completing my Bachelor of Commerce (Majoring in HR Management), I worked with the NZ Fire Service and Girl Guiding NZ in the learning and development, training and administration space. My experience from these roles, combined with my degree and my interpersonal and communication skills, hold me in good stead in my environment and role within the Tātai Aho Rau Core Education whānau.

Personal statement

I am a fun loving, enthusiastic, self-motivated and hard-working person who thrives on challenges. There is nothing I love more than escaping off on adventures and exploring and experiencing what the world has to offer.

I love spending time with my friends and family, meeting new people and can often be found burning the dance floor.

I like to explain myself as a ‘Jack in a Box’ because I believe I am an action packed little person with a big personality that loves to brighten up people’s day.
