I am excited to have been elected to the PMAANZ Executive, and am very much looking forward to being able to network and share ideas with other brilliant like-minded people within our industry.

Throughout the week, you will find me in between Total Health Doctors and The Doctors – Phoenix, in Whakatane. I’m lucky enough to live in the sunny Bay of Plenty, and here my role as Administration Manager for the two practices keeps me on my toes.

I am a keen learner and enjoy developing myself professionally. I am qualified in Event and Tourism Management, and am one paper away from completing the NZIM Diploma in Practice Management.

I’m grateful for the education pathways PMAANZ provides, and know they have helped me immensely since beginning my career in the health industry. Practice Management is a diverse and sometimes challenging role, one that is unique and requires a variety of skills and attributes.

On weekends and when not studying I enjoy the beach, fishing at White Island and spending time with my stepdaughter.

I look forward to working with you all and wish you all the best for an exciting 2017!
