Being raised in Taitokerau Northland has meant it is home for me. Despite traveling, living, and working elsewhere across New Zealand and abroad, it always draws me back.
Alongside coordinating the coworking and events space The Orchard, my mahi as a Growth Advisor is in connecting businesses in Taitokerau conducting research and development with expertise and support through Callaghan Innovation. I have a varied background in private and NGO sectors in coordination, communications, advocacy, and customer relations.
After hours, I'm generally playing outside or in the sea, working on DIY projects, convincing friends and family to join me on adventures, or treasure hunting at op-shops.
