Ko Lisa-Jane Ahau
Kia ora koutou. Hi, I’m Lisa-Jane. I am looking forward to this opportunity of working as a Kaitūhono/Connector as part of the Mana Whaikaha Enabling Good Lives Team in the prototype for the MidCentral region.
I am a parent to two adult children and a grandparent to one mokopuna. I have recently moved into my own home to allow us to further grow and flourish in our strengths and abilities.
I am a muso, I love classic cars and motorbikes and strive towards the concepts of Te Ao Maori (a Maori world view), and further developing my Te Reo and connections. I love spending time with my wider whānau/family. I enjoy the outdoors, socialising, the moana/beach, the awa/rivers and the elements. I aspire to live a more natural and holistic lifestyle.
I am currently completing a diploma in reflexology which will enable me to become a registered practitioner of this complimentary therapy. As an addition to my complimentary therapies, I do Barrs work and make products such as kawakawa balms and other products. Last but not least, I am a weaver and enjoy working with harakeke.
I have had experience in working in the disability field on and off over the past 30 years. I started my working journey in rest homes alongside elderly people. I’ve worked alongside students in schools, as a community support worker, in the brain injury area, and mental health. I worked for the Ministry of Education teaching Te Reo and kapa haka from pre-school to year 13 in mainstream schooling in the Wairarapa and Tararua areas. I’ve also worked for Corrections, Telecom, New Zealand Rail, Enable New Zealand and now as a Kaitūhono/Connector.
I am excited and looking forward to this journey of walking alongside people to learn more about them and what their dreams and aspirations are.
I look forward to meeting you. Nga mihi kia koutou.
