Tēnā koutou,

I am passionate about education, this passion grew during my Air Force career and through playing and coaching touch rugby.

It is great to be home, to work at Awanuiārangi, and it’s a privilege to support tauira on their educational journey.

Tēna tātau e ngā manu kai miro.

Papaki mai ō parirau ki ngā peka o Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi ki a whānui ake te kai, ki a whānui ake te tirohanga.

I am excited to start as a new kaimahi in Awhi Tauira. I enjoy working with tauira and helping them explore rangahau, expand their ideas and reach their writing goals. I believe the tertiary space is a place to explore, grow and be inspired. I hope to help in your academic journey this year so come in and see us at Awhi Tauira.
