Appointed as Executive Assistant, I am responsible for supporting our Chief Executive Officer.
Prior to joining Le Va, I have over 9 years of experience working for the New Zealand public sector, primarily within the Justice and Correctional Services. My strengths are in administration and secretarial duties, carried through to be able to perform at a district level, case management- including risk analysis, assessments, report writing inclusive of providing recommendations for rehabilitative and reintegrative requirements, networking and New Zealand legislation.
I am passionate about social justice and change and exploring solutions to problems believing they lie within our own communities.
I am privileged to have come from an interracial background, my mother having both Māori and Samoan ties, from the Hokianga in the upper north island and the villages of Sapunaoa in the Falealili District and Vailuutai in Apia. My father is of European decent.
I enjoy working with those that are driven on influencing positive change, who work hard and have a great sense of humour.
