Regional Rep - Central North Island
Hi I am Tina
I live in a small town called Waitara about ten minutes from New Plymouth. I have two adult children, Jessica and Axel. Together with my dad they are my most favourite people.
I work as a social worker for Oranga Tamariki, where I have been for 17 years. In that time I have always been involved with the union I have been both site and national delegate many times. I have seen a lot of changes good and some not so good and it is knowing that I belong to a union that has strong Wahine like all of you that helps me sleep at night. I have always been driven and passionate about gender equality I hope I have helped improve things for my daughter, but as importantly raised a son who has a understanding and respect for all humanity.
I look forward to getting to know each of you better. I am confident we all have unique and interesting stories to share.
