I have a master in midwifery and a doctorate in health science and have worked in LMC practice as well as in regional and national midwifery leadership roles. My current role at the Health Quality & Safety Commission focuses on patient safety and resilient health care systems.

I am passionate about improving outcomes for wāhine and improving systems where midwives provide care. My knowledge in leading national maternal morbidity work, and wider patient safety work, brings national and international insights to support a robust and contemporary review of midwifery in Aotearoa. I hope my experience will assist in developing guidance to support midwifery to anticipate, respond, learn and adapt, thereby enabling safe midwifery care to flourish into the future.
