My goal is to combine my marketing business experience, and knowledge of te ao Māori to help Māori businesses prosper and thrive. I have worked in marketing management since graduating with a Bachelor of Business Studies from Massey University in the late 1990s. I am currently completing a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Māori Knowledge, extramurally through Massey University.
I am grateful for the support I am receiving from Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō to achieve my dream to be fluent in te reo Māori.
