CDANZ Profile Summary
I have specialized in career development work for the past 12 years, working in self-employed private practice vocational rehabilitation as a service provider for ACC and private insurance companies for eight years and completing my post graduate studies in Career Development during that time. For the past four years I have been working as a career advisor in a rural high school.
I love working with our students, they are so full of life and promise and keeping up with them and the ever changing career landscape in NZ makes for an extremely busy work place and never a dull moment. I also manage the STAR and Gateway programmes and Distance Learning and this keeps me up to speed with the current labour market and latest government initiatives concerning youth career pathways.
Although I was born and bred in beautiful Southland I am now a proud Northlander having lived in Dargaville since 1986. My partner Gregory and I are parents to two daughters and a son.
I attended The University of Otago and Dunedin Teachers College back in the seventies and taught in Auckland, North Canterbury and London before settling in gorgeous Northland.
