Kia ora! I worked extensively in various health and community well-being service roles, supporting at-risk, high-needs whānau and working with Māori organisations that are whānau-focused.
My main focus since 2012 has been on FASD education and support for individuals with FASD. I've delivered education on FASD in multiple workshops and courses such as within the Tikanga Mātua Te Ao Māori Parenting Programme and workshops in schools for those working with FASD tamariki.
I've contributed to the Northern Region FASD Strategic Plan and as a panel member to the development of the NZ National FASD Training Tool (developed by Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui) to ensure it included tikanga practices, and subsequently ran the first of the Frontline Professional FASD Training Tool workshops.
I have recently been a member of the panel which fed back to the Government on the 2016-2019 NZ FASD National Strategic Plan.
