I was born in the East Coast Bays, and have been living in the area for over 40 years. I am raising two children with my husband in Okura and am heavily invested in my local community.

After attending Rangitoto College, I went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours at the University of Auckland. I have worked in a number of export sales roles for New Zealand manufacturers, and have produced a range of local television shows, including Piha Rescue.

I spent four years working for the former MP for East Coast Bays, Hon Murray McCully. I helped thousands of locals, businesses and organisations navigate their way through various government departments. This was the pointy end of policy and reinforced my passion for this amazing community.

I am really proud to have represented the East Coast Bays as your Member of Parliament since 2017. I have worked hard to achieve results on a wide range of projects that are important to our community.
