Tēnā koe! Who am I? In my personal life, I’m a mum, sister and daughter, gardener and musician. My working life is in social innovation with a focus on local food systems. I previously worked as a lawyer and have been employed in diverse roles in the public and community sectors.

I joined the Greens a decade ago because I was attracted to the four principles of ecological wisdom, social responsibility, appropriate decision-making and non-violence. I’m standing as a candidate because I believe we need Greens in government to drive climate action and equitable outcomes for all of Aotearoa. I have run twice before for the Greens in Invercargill.
