Kiaora te Whanau o Te Rūnanga ō Ngā Toa Āwhina.
I am a Health Promoting Schools kaiarahi for Waitemata District Health Board. As a Māori Enterprise delegate for our DHB in the Auckland region I represent Te Tira Hauora as DHB Sector Māngai on the kōmiti for Te Rūnanga o Nga Toa Awhina.
I see accelerating equity as an objective in every role that I am involved in. No less in my role as sector māngai or even as a service delegate. It is important to me to be able to advocate for the individual as well as a group or Māori as a whole. My commitment is to encourage Māori voice to speak up and when they do, to do all I can to support them for fair and equitable outcomes.
