Social Worker


Service Integration Facilitator

I trained as a nurse and completed a Masters nursing degree in England. My career has been in general practice, district nurse, Plunket nurse roles as well as teaching nurses and other health professionals.
In Christchurch I worked for 6 years as the first Neighbourhood Nurse for the community of Aranui, then I was a rural nurse specialist in Franz Josef Glacier before returning to Christchurch in 2011. I worked with the team at Pacific Health Clinic and then in roles to help people on benefits get back into paid work and coordinating the B4 School check programme across Canterbury.
For the past 7 years I have been based at Travis Medical Centre, in a job which supports a wide range of services across Canterbury to become more “joined up” in how people are cared for, to keep them as well as possible in their own homes. I have also been involved with the Canterbury Children’s Team to support families who have complex matters to deal with.
Over the past 6 years, my adult children have given me the best job in the world of being Nana to three gorgeous boys & a beautiful wee girl, right here in Christchurch – how lucky am I ?
