Team Manager – Animal Technology 

Contact info



I have been at Wintec for 17 years, working first as a horticulture technician tending the kitchen garden at Hamilton Gardens and then teaching horticulture for 10 years, focusing mainly on plant and soil sciences. After that, I worked with the foundation skills team developing and teaching the primary industries programme for My Career Pathways. I am now Team Manager for Animal Technology. We work on a beautiful campus with open spaces; it seems like a farm even though we are in the city.

Since living in New Zealand, I have learnt about native flora, rongoa, and te reo. I enjoy learning new things, working with people, and using this knowledge daily.  

I am passionate about habitat restoration and growing vegetable gardens. I enjoy tramping, cooking, and looking after my moko during the weekend.
