Registered Nurse – Health Coach
I was born in Mangakino, a small rural community in South Waikato.
My interest in health started with my mothers breast cancer diagnosis when I was 16. At this time very few treatment options were available other than mainstream. As a family, we researched and utilized many options including diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. This influenced my decision to train as a nurse.
I am currently working in Taupo Inpatient Unit and District Nursing.
My interests are sustainability and environmental. I own a lifestyle block and hope to be as self-sufficient as possible with food production and energy. When I am not working in my garden or have a DIY project, I enjoy music and mountain biking/sailing with my partner Glen. I have 3 children who have recently left home which has created an opportunity for me to begin training as a health coach.
