Ministry of Education
I am the PSA National Delegate Convenor for PSA members within the Ministry of Education and I am based in Auckland.
I spend half my week dedicated to my substantive role as a Senior Education Advisor working directly with Auckland schools and the other half as the National Delegate Convenor; supporting the 1,000 PSA members at the Ministry of Education and their 70 delegates.
Prior to joining the Ministry of Education I was a primary school teacher, then an ESOL specialist teacher and initially I trained as a Nurse. I firmly believe that everyone has the right to be paid fairly and I work hard within the Ministry of Education towards the achieving this by supporting our Gender Pay Action Plan, Job Evaluation, Diversity and Inclusion, Bargaining and terms and conditions for members generally.
I am privileged to be a member of the Public Service committee as I believe in the power of the group; we proudly represent more than 35,000 members.
