I see HIV infection prevention as a kind of injury prevention and the work we can do now can have a big impact on what the future will look like for our communities – our actions send out ripples into the future.
I currently also work part-time in the clinical library at Waitemata DHB and worked for several years for Safekids (the child injury prevention service connected with Starship).
I have an MA in Anthropology, a postgrad library qualification and have also worked in law, university and public libraries here and in London in the past.
I grew up in Opotiki in the eastern Bay of Plenty and have connections to Ngai Tuhoe and Ngati Awa. I have a Fine Arts degree from Elam and an interest in gardening.
