Since completing my studies and gaining my degree in New Plymouth my husband and I moved to the Far-North and I worked as a social Worker in Schools for an iwi organisation based in Kaitaia. I did this for 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed being able to work with children, youth and their families.
After a bit of travel abroad we returned to New Zealand and decided that the Bay of Plenty would be our next place to call home. I worked for Autism New Zealand for 2 years which was a fascinating and enjoyable role.
My new appointment into the team at Family Works Tauranga as the Social Worker in Schools (SWIS) for Greerton Village School has enabled me to continue to support and work with children and their families, I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.
I also have a young daughter who is the light of my life and certainly ensures that there is never a dull moment for us.
