Ko Anahera tōku ingoa
I tipu ake au ki Manurewa
Ko au te mātāmua o tōku whānau, he tokowhā matou
Ko Te Aupouri me Te Rarawa ngā iwi
Ko Wataaria raua ko Maera Petera (nee Rudolph) ōku tupuna mātua
No te whānau Petera ahau, engari ko Woolcock tōku ingoa marena
I feel very fortunate to be part of the whānau at Le Va focussed on preventing suicide in the FLO and LifeKeepers programmes, but also working across teams to empower our Pasifika and Māori communities.
Part of my role will be to co-facilitate the Life Keepers/Mana Akiaki workshops which I’m particularly excited about.
I wholeheartedly believe in the value of traditional Māori and Pasifika cultures, and feel that everyone can benefit from learning more about the ways of our ancestors.
My background is mainly in administration and logistics. I also bring the flair of Performing Arts and Māori culture with me everywhere I go. You’ll very rarely see me without a guitar in hand!
Outside of work you’ll find me with my whānau or at the beach with my husband. We’re keen surfers (I’m still learning!) and huge lovers of nature.
We practise our kaitiakitanga every day and do our best to live a minimal waste lifestyle at home.
