Why I’m running
Aotearoa NZ is the best country in the world to live and raise a family. My motivation to run is simple. I hold to a principle that children are a heritage from the Lord and are a nations richest treasure. Every child, young person and adult for that matter deserve to live, develop and prosper under a national environment that fashions this in a healthy safe way. Parliament is a privilege, not a right with a responsibility to decision-make for the well-being of a nation and her people.
I currently live in Taupō but was born and raised in Gisborne. I have a wealth of experience in community engagement and development, welfare management in civil defence, social work facilitation and delivery, understanding of the non-for-profit, non-government sectors and 9 years in local government in a strategic partnership advisory role. My greatest challenge but now rewarding one was having to sole-parent my children. Now I am blessed with 21 grandchildren to enjoy. Value family.
