Candidate Statement:

I am a highly motivated individual, with great people skills and enjoy working within diverse surroundings. I have a people-focused personality with a can-do attitude. My career has shown my ability to learn new skills quickly, foster working relationships, identify needs and apply solutions where necessary. I have over ten years’ experience in the field of administrative roles having primarily worked in the tertiary education sector. I always seek to explore opportunities to enhance my knowledge and abilities so the prospect of representing Te Pahou Marae at a governance level has certainly caught my attention. I am very whanau-orientated and believe that not only will I be contributing to the Trust as an individual but also to my whanau, my hapu and my iwi.
