Why I’m running
I want Upper Harbour to have a strong voice in government, and to ensure that decisions taken at a national level make sense locally. Upper Harbour is a diverse electorate covering communities with shared interests and concerns but also unique interests and concerns. I have a track record of working on the ground, listening, and actively seeking community views. I will be a strong voice in government for Upper Harbour residents if elected and intend to keep a close ear to the ground.
I've worked in private legal practice, the public sector, and the not for profit sector for fifteen years. I've worked both in Aotearoa and internationally and have developed a diverse skill set including in legal practice, senior management, policy development and governance. At present I'm a senior manager at the Human Rights Commission, a director of a legal practice and a trustee at Foundation North, New Zealand's largest community trust, funding projects in Auckland and Northland.
