Contact details


Born in Wellington and raised with my nine siblings at 25 Jessie Street in Te Aro where it was very convenient for walking to both primary and secondary schools.

I now live in Broadmeadows nestled against the Town Belt with Lorraine, Lillee, Hollee and Wolfgang Amadeus Meowzart where we enjoy the native birds and wildlife daily.

I joined Telecom building and maintaining Telephone Exchanges then migrated to Head Office Marketing Data Systems as Product Manager. I continued my marketing career with Unisys as Marketing Manager and completed a Bachelor of Business Studies at Massey University. From there, I started my career in international business with Ericsson Communications and completed a Diploma in International Business continuing to work in 46 countries with American, German and British conglomerates in technological industries on large infrastructure projects globally. 

Together with three others, I established the Onslow Residents Community Association six years ago and enjoyed representing community concerns and issues that led me to running for council.
