I have been in a senior management position for 8 years, with a background in digital marketing, vocational education and support for disenfranchised groups. Having managed some of the largest trade programmes in New Zealand, I have a keen understanding of the business world. Outside of politics, I have coached senior rugby for years, relishing the benefits of it: purpose, goals, health, community, networks, and personal growth. Elevating individuals and our nation's potential is my passion, and I find joy in supporting people’s development.

I am driven to build quality, intergenerational foundations for education and the economy. I seek a shift towards a government that addresses the critical failures of education, and to foster an environment that supports business, entrepreneurship, and provides opportunity. I would like to see us educate, nurture and incentivise our talent to better engage in the global marketplace.
