Kia ora koutou, I really enjoy being part of the Student Care team and  bring a strengths based, collaborative approach to working with students.  After gaining my BA in  psychology & drama from  UC I moved to Auckland to study and work as a contemporary dancer. I later returned to UC to complete my Masters in Social Work (Appl) and have worked in the NGO sector and for the CDHB.  I have a particular interest in stress management and as a meditation practitioner I’m interested in mindfulness approaches to working with issues facing students.  I enjoy working with students to support them in their learning and wellbeing journey.
