At the beginning of 2018 I started as a lecturer within Te Hautaki Waiora Faculty of Health, Sport and Human Performance. Previously, I was a Māori Health Consultant based out of Whaingaroa/Raglan. In 2015 I completed a PhD at Massey University, which focussed on Māori notions of ‘Resilience’ and how they are utilised by whānau who had experienced adversity. With Honours and Masters degrees from Otago University, my research expertise has been broadly based in the area of Māori Health. For the past 10 years I have been a volunteer facilitator for the Te Taitimu Youth Trust in Hawkes Bay.
Outside of work I enjoy surfing, spearfishing, gathering kaimoana and spending time with whānau.
My research experienced is based within Māori Health and Development. This includes subject areas such as Mātauranga Māori, Māori Physical Activity, Māori and Bluespaces/Oceanscape, Māori Suicide Prevention, and Rangatahi Health.
