LifeChurch (NZ) Community Trust, Auckland
Over the last 25 years my community outreach has included being a caregiver, women's group organiser, community donations coordinator, Missions Team Leader, and Communications Manager. I am formally certified as an Ordained Minister in Christian Community Churches New Zealand (formerly known as Open Brethren). I am also a Trust Board Member of LifeChurch (NZ) Community Trust.
I believe integrity comes from love without judgement, cultivating a sense of belonging through connections and conversations, and meeting people where they're at. Accepting and honouring people is important to me, and is an expression of my faith that leads to a unified, faith-full community.

Manukau Ward Community Consultation
Engaged the local Pasifika community in the Manukau Ward encouraging active voting in the Local Body Elections. This was achieved by approaching community leaders, families, youth and grassroots community groups -wherever people gathered, we were there: halls, churches, youth groups, craft groups, markets, the TAB, and even to people's homes. As a result we achieved historical levels of in-depth cultural understanding and empathy with these communities, which we converted to community engagement.
Whau Pacific Peoples Plan
Whau Local Board was the first Local Board to develop a Pacific Plan. Whau commissioned Bluespur to create the Whau Pacific Plan, based on a deep empathetic and experiential understanding of stakeholder needs. This needs assessment for the plan was developed by face-to-face community engagement with sports groups, churches, local community groups and those working at the coalface. The result was a
plan that was signed off by Board Chair Tracy Mulholland in a ceremony witnessed by key stakeholders and the community leaders we consulted with. In both projects: We liaised with leaders of our Pasifika communities - Samoan, Tongan, Niuean, Cook Island, Fijian, Tokelau, Kiribati. This included organising interpreters for engagement workshops, and understanding specific cultural needs.
