A little about myself. I am married to Paul and we have two boys, Samuel and Joshua. I love spending time with my family, and as a unit we have a close support base which I value dearly. As well as Early Childhood teaching, I also work at Graham Condon as an aerobics tutor teaching Pump and Zumba.

My interests include water skiing, Latin dancing, aerobics etc. I also love to cook and in my youth worked in a restaurant kitchen before turning to early childhood, during the winter months, I enjoy sitting in front of the telly doing Sudoku.

My journey to be here in the Mairehau team started in 1995 as a teen. I moved to Christchurch from Tauranga to study at Rangi Ruru Nanny School, during my first year I completed a placement at a preschool (back then called Childspace) and loved it. From there, I continued my training as an early childhood professional at Christchurch College of Education, and gained my BTchLn.

Since gaining my qualifications, I had been based at the same centre just under different management (Childspace 96-99, Bee Knees 99-06, Shirley First Learners) for 13 years. Over the years I have played a number of roles including Head Teacher in both the Nursery and Preschool areas, Assistant Supervisor and now Supervisor for Mairehau First Learners.
