I work as a staff midwife at Waterford Birth Centre in Hamilton, and as a Clinical Educator at AUT, where I am part of the Pasifika Team. I am Co-Chair of Pasifika Midwives Aotearoa (PMWA) and a Pasifika Representative on the NZCOM National Board.
The opportunity to be a Pasifika Representative on the Aotearoa Midwifery Project, will allow me to contribute to policy affecting Pasifika and other minority groups. Pasifika women have specific perspectives and needs, as do Pasifika midwives and midwifery students. My positionality and roles within Pasifika, midwifery and educational communities put me in a privileged place. This will allow me to ensure that decisions made by the group benefit our Pacific population.
