Work Experience

I have over 31 years nursing and teaching experience. I trained at Wellington Hospital as a Registered General and Obstetric Nurse. I am currently a Senior Academic Staff Member in the School of Health, FHASS, Wintec and am the Tihei Mauri Ora Team Leader in the School of Health.

Areas of Specialisation

I have a strong interest in the achievement of Māori Students in the nursing and midwifery degree programmes and post graduate studies. Māori have a way of acquiring and learning knowledge that does not always fit within a mainstream organisation and I attempt to provide the bridge to facilitate their learning.
