Born, raised and educated in Matamata, the people and community of Matamata are very important to me. As a mother of three and head teacher of Te Wharekura o Te Rau Aroha, I have had the privilege of working alongside children, youth and parents for many years. I would like to ensure their collective voice and vision for our community of Matamata has been shared.
As an advocate of education, cultural and socio- economic advancement, I would love the opportunity to help support and contribute towards a positive and prosperous community, as a member of the Matamata-Piako District Council.
