It is my privilege to be part of your dying process - let's make it beautiful.

Ko Waikaremoana te awa

Ko Mataatua te waka

Ko Nati Wharepapa te hapu

Ko Nai Tuhoe te iwi

Originally I was born and bred in Christchurch and moved to Gisborne in 2019 for my partner to be closer to his whānau, and now call this beautiful place home.

I completed my Bachelor of Nursing degree in Christchurch and in 2019 I completed a Post Graduate Diploma of Health Science in Advanced Nursing at the University of Auckland.  I intend to continue my studies to become a Nurse Practitioner in Palliative Care. I have always been passionate about quality palliative care nursing and believe it is my 'calling' as a nurse.

I am employed at Hospice part-time as a Clinical Nurse Specialist, predominantly spending my time collaborating with Hospice patients, whānau and staff in aged residential care facilities. I have recently returned back to work after an extended period of parental leave. I look forward to working alongside our community in palliative care.
