Why I’m running
I feel privileged to call New Zealand my home, and I think it's essential to work towards inclusive communities where everyone achieves their potential and feels they belong, and where we use our resources wisely into the future. I have strong listening, communication and advocacy skills and a wealth of overseas and local experience within a number of industries and communities. I look forward to using this knowledge to represent the diversity of Tāmaki and to get the best for you as MP.
With six years of local government experience, I know the key issues affecting Aucklanders. I have listened to community and advocated for SME access to local government contracts, increased future planning, youth, and better transport outcomes. There is still much to do and my skills and experience in Auckland Council mean I will be a strong voice in central government. I have a background in teaching and teacher development and chair of the Hauraki Islands branch of Forest and Bird.
