Before my position with He Kākano, I worked as a researcher with the Poutama Pounamu Educational Research & Development Centre, a research whānau that supported Māori students and their whānau in a range of Māori and English language education settings, and which was a part of Special Education, Ministry of Education. I am actively involved in my local community, including serving as a trustee with Huria Management Trust, a marae-based Private Training Establishment and Health Provider. This kaupapa Māori organisation was established in 1986 by the people of Ngāi Tamarāwaho to support hapū activities and hapū development, which included the rebuilding of the whare tupuna Tamatea Pokaiwhenua that was completed in 2005.
