Born and raised in Motueka I had a brief stint away in Dunedin studying Physical Education and Science at the University of Otago. After graduating with this double degree in 2008 I moved back to Motueka and began working at Greenwood Health in the Admin team in 2010. In recognition of my knowledge and understanding of health and pharmacology I moved from Admin and became a Health Care Assistant, where I play a vital role for GPs, patients and nurses in the provision of repeat prescriptions. I also am one of Greenwood Health’s Child Protection Officers. Outside of my work at Greenwood I am a married busy Mum of 3 and work as an EMT for St John while I finish my 3rd year of a Paramedicine degree through Auckland University of Technology.
