I was brought up in rural New Zealand so have a great understanding of farming, agriculture and the environment.
Some of my clients are multimillionaires and some are beneficiaries but in the end we are all people.
I was diagnosed with a chronic illness when I was 11 years old - I believe this has helped shape my thinking and the fact that I want to leave a legacy for the future.
Goals I have set myself are; giving it my all in an exciting and challenging role, meeting new people, adding to Mangakahia-Maungatapere and the Whangarei District.
I can see myself in this role for years to come.
Things that I don't stand for:
- Ludicrous proposals
- False narratives & misinformation
- Throwing all resources at only a few issues to attract votes
- Financial mismanagement
- "Back room" "deals"
