Manager Petone Shop and Fundraising Ambassador

As Manager of the Petone outlet, I am fortunate to be supported by a diversely talented team of Duty Managers and wonderful volunteer base, all of whom regularly support at fundraising events as well as their shop work. Their invaluable contribution humbles and drives me.

I believe in the free palliative care that Te Omanga Hospice provides to those on our programme.  Making a tangible financial contribution on a 7 day basis through retail, along with fundraising event work is very rewarding and a great privilege.

After a working career in both the corporate and artistic worlds and raising a family, I volunteered at Te Omanga Hospice for a number of years.  The contagious nature of the work and cause saw me become more involved at fundraising events and committees.

A loving family, the arts, gardening, mentoring, my work and faith are all important parts of who I am.  Compassion, a sense of fun and warmth, respectful professionalism and belief in Te Omanga Hospice underpins my work and that of my staff.
