Why I’m running
I am a NZ-trained medical doctor and currently work as a GP in Nawton, Hamilton. I have previously worked in policy, public health, consulting and management in NZ, Switzerland, Spain, Nepal, Mongolia, USA and Vietnam. While I love making one-to-one difference in the lives of my patients as a GP, through my broad range of experiences above I have realised that politics has the potential to make an even larger positive impact in the society and this is why I am running to make a bigger difference.
I work as a GP in Nawton and live in Frankton. I studied medicine at the Auckland Medical School and did part of my training in Waikato-Bay of Plenty region. As the local doctor, I have had the opportunity to hear first-hand, the concerns of many in our community during these difficult times. I also have a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and have served in management roles in many organisations. I will bring a robust background in health and management to the post-pandemic recovery phase.
