You’ll often find her in the neighbourhood in Moera spending time with the tamariki and whanau of the school, as well as other local residents. She currently spends some of her time in the local politics scene as a Petone Community Board member and is passionate in areas of social and environmental justice.
With his life in question during a serious illness – a few things fell into perspective. From here on – every day has to count towards something bigger than just himself. After time working in sales and recruitment he joined the team at Inspiring Stories, where as General Manager he heads up business development and leads a team to make a difference for young New Zealanders. During his time at Inspiring Stories, he’s co-founded a new social enterprise arm called Millennials, a recruitment agency that helps New Zealand’s purpose-driven businesses connect up with top young Kiwi talent.
