I am one of the new Kaitūhono/Connectors from Palmerston North. I am a registered Early Childhood Kaiako/Educator. I am currently completing my Master of Applied Linguistics at Victoria University. I believe in the importance of inclusive practice.
I have a real strength in communication using English, New Zealand Sign Language, and Te Reo Māori (basic). I have over 40 years’ experience within the disability sector as a sibling, parent, support parent, and advocate.
I am passionate about creating an inclusive society: one that removes barriers for all people, especially those with speech and/or expressive language impairment.
