In my spare time I like to walk the hills of Wellington and have a set a goal to walk the full length of Te Araroa Trail. I managed a few days skiing this year, I volunteer at a local surf club and help out during competition events. I am a parent of three grown sons and I have been married to Wayne for over 25 years.
I also have a passion for supporting the next generation of parents to navigate this connected and overindulgent world we are currently experiencing.
