"I’ve spent 12 years in Hawke’s Bay with my husband Henry, raising our four children and making the most of everything Tukituki has to offer. After years as a TVNZ reporter, business director and senior marketing executive at Bostock New Zealand and director on the New Zealand Apples and Pears Board, I want to deliver for Tukituki as the next MP in Christopher Luxon’s National team.
I’m deeply involved in our community, sitting on the Havelock North Primary School’s board of trustees, supporting many local sports groups, organising community fundraiser, the Peak Trail Blazer and formerly having sat on the Havelock North Business Association.
My experience is current and relevant to tackle the challenges facing our region.
My passion for this amazing part of New Zealand alongside, my ability to get things done and desire to influence change, has driven me to enter politics.
Tukituki deserves a strong local MP to deliver on the issues that truly matter like addressing the cost-of-living crisis, cracking down on the crime making people feel unsafe in their homes and businesses, improving our local infrastructure and creating better public services like health and education."
