I have been following my passion for the last 20 years to support and encourage rangatahi of all ages to achieve their potential.

I have extensive knowledge in the areas of Youth Education, Leadership training and community development. I’ve also served on a number of boards and Trusts both locally and nationally that have a youth focus.
