I am a paediatric physiotherapist, working as the Operations Manager for Paediatric and Professional Rehabilitation Services Ltd in Auckland. I have a passion for working with young people and their families, particularly those challenged by disability. I have both a PhD and a Masters degree in disability issues, with a focus on transition to adult life and community team work. I have been a supporter of Foster Hope since its’ inception and recently stepped up to take a more active role as Secretary. I am also the Auckland Transition co-ordinator and look after providing teenagers ageing out of foster care with Flat Packs to help them on their way.
