Ko Tohoraha te maunga, ko Motutangi te awa, Ko Ngāti Kuri te iwi;

Ko Matokit te maunga, ko nerteva te awa, ko Ngāti Tarara te iwi.

Tēnā koutou, tēna koutou, tēnā tatou katoa.


My favourite whakatauki is Titiro whakamuri, whakarite ināianei hei hāngai whakamua – Embrace the past, prepare now to shape the future.

I am blessed and excited to be appointed as the new Chief Executive of Te Kupenga (September 2022).

I have had a range of roles in the education sector, including teaching, management, experience as a secondary school principal and with the Education Review Office.

My most recent position was Regional Manager for Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (known as Te Kura – previously the NZ Correspondence School).

My academic qualifications include BA (Psychology), BSc (Mathematics), Post Grad Diplomas in Teaching, Education, and Business and Administration, and Master of Management (Massey).

I am also a Justice of the Peace.

I am interested in most sports and have been involved in participating, coaching, administrating, officiating and managing teams in athletics and basketball.

I enjoy national dancing and singing in the choir at the Auckland Dalmatian Cultural Society.

I am married and have two adult children and two grandchildren.
