General Information

I joined the Board of Trustees in June 2014 as one of the Parent Reps. I work as an accounts administrator for a local company called Mum 2 Mum. Outside of work I am married with two children, a son Zac and daughter Alex and keep myself busy with them and singing with a local acapella group called the Waikato Rivertones.
I came to McKenzie Centre between February 2013 and July 2016 with Alex who has a deletion on one of her chromosomes. This has affected most of her development but especially her speech.
I am very excited to be part of the Trustees as I feel it is very important to give back to this amazing Centre that has given so much to our family. I want to make sure that it stays in the best shape possible to keep going for many more years and that the input from the parents is really important. Having been in administration for many years now, I hope that I can bring organisational skills and support to the Trust.
