LearningWorks design, develop and deliver learning and training resources, technology and training.

We help learning work. Kia hangai te ako.

I am a proud Mum of two and Grandma of three. In my spare time, I like to garden, spend time with family, read, get creative through crafts and expand my knowledge.

I have also been known to get stuck into building projects.

Recently I have completed the He Papa Tikanga programme and am currently working on the He Papa Te Reo. This is important in business but also important to support the culture of my grandchildren.

Raised in Te Awamutu, I have spent the past 35 years in Hamilton where I live with my husband, daughter, two grandchildren and our dog. I also have another Hamilton based daughter who is a teacher, with another grandchild.

Work has always been an important part of my life. With 15+ years in education, you could say that I have found my passion in a sector I love. Gaining the Chief Executive position at LearningWorks has been a highlight of my career to date.

Education is a people business. I am driven to grow the capability of NZ Inc. and those that work within the sector. My specialty is relationship management that builds collaborative partnerships and drives successful results. I deliver on my promises.
