I grew up in Papakura and trained in medicine and paediatrics in Auckland. Taranaki is now my home and were I live with my little whānau. I trained in developmental paediatrics as I had been inspired from a young age by our Tamariki with different superpowers. I am passionate about supporting and advocating for whānau and children with different abilities and Autism. I am also inspired by the work Autism Connex does in Taranaki and am honored to support them.
