Principal Aquatics Specialist
I have been involved in facility operations and management for over 25 years across both the local government and private environments. My skills range from improving operational efficiency through to developing strategic objectives for networks and facilities. I am passionate about making inclusive welcoming places for communities to access.
Through my career experiences to date, I understand the need for Councils to provide recreational services for their communities and the complex environment of change within which these services exist. I have assisted Porirua City Council, Napier City Council, Wellington City Council, and Auckland Council across a broad spectrum of areas including Health and Safety investigations, system and process improvements, operational training and audits, asset maintenance and strategic development. I am also part of the Poolsafe advisory group for Recreation Aotearoa leading standards across the aquatics industry.
I apply my understanding of the facilities and recreation environments to create solutions that allow clients to be self-sustaining and create accessible recreation opportunities.
