Kia ora tātou, I am thrilled to be joining the Board of Fertility NZ and look forward to assisting with the important mahi of this organisation.
My day job is at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, where I am currently working to deliver vaccines to developing countries. I primarily have a policy background and have worked in operational and strategic roles across the public and non-profit sectors.
Having had my own, often lonely, fertility journey, I am passionate about increasing services and support for others experiencing infertility. For the last two years, I have been a volunteer and treasurer of the Wellington branch and facilitated support sessions both in-person and via Zoom. If you would like to check out more about my fertility story, see the March 2021 edition of the Dandelion.
