I am married to Greg and have three children and two grandchildren, our youngest child Thomas, has Down Syndrome.

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and my husband Greg was on Dialysis for three years then had a kidney transplant in 2016.  This can make life in our household interesting at times.  I have always believed it is what you can do, not what you can’t do.  To keep positive and having a good sense of humour helps.  I am a creative person and I enjoy gardening, painting, sculpture and fishing.

I have been involved with the local Down Syndrome Support Group for over 20 years and are one of the founding members.  I run a Social Group for adults who have a disability.  It is all about people just hanging out together, having fun, making friends and just enjoying each other’s company.

I have been on the Consumer Council since it was first established.  With the knowledge, experience and passion that sits within this Council, we can only move forward in a positive way.

Some areas of interest to me are: Renal, Maternity, Child Health, Whānau Tahi, Emergency Department, Accessibility and Car Parking.
