About me


Ko Matairangi te maunga

Ko Te Whanganui-ā-Tara te moana

Ko Pōneke te rohe pōtae

Kei Muritai tōku kainga

Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa.


I am currently a project manager and Whānau Lead at CORE. My role involves working on a wide range of interesting projects with a variety of clients including the MOE, NZ Young Farmers, MPI, NASDAP to name just a few. I am also the project lead for CORE's the breakfast seminar and workshop programme. This runs as a face-to-face event across 5 locations around NZ and offers a total of 36 professional learning events during the school year. As well as this we also live stream the programme from Wellington and have this available as a recording as well. I have a background as a primary teacher and really love all opportunities to connect with the education sector at all levels.


Brief description: I have taught from new entrants to Year 8, both in New Zealand and the UK. I have also worked as a Reading Recovery teacher and as a SENCO. Lots of things followed my 12 years teaching. First off it was having six wonderful years at Learning Media in the International team writing and marketing literacy materials to North America, UK, Asia and Australia. This role also included delivering literacy professional development to teachers in Asia. From there I moved into working in online environments as a project manager and then developed other roles including developing educational content for websites and CORE's breakfast seminar programme.
