About

I'm a part-time GP at Victoria University of Wellington and a busy mum of three teenage children. Passionate about empowering young people to be the best they can be, my special areas of interest include sexual health, contraception, mental health and well-being, diabetes, and improving health for vulnerable communities.

I'm a part of Mauri Ora's Outreach Team, looking after our Māori, Pasifika, international and gender diverse students.

When I'm not working, I'm a part of the local sexual assault service and provide teaching to the police and other groups around sexual harm response and prevention.
