My principal place of residence is not in the Feilding General Ward area.

Working today for a better tomorrow

I love the Manawatu District and living in Colyton with my family. I value the vibrant community that surrounds us, it's full of opportunity for business, growing families and attracting those looking to retire, while enhancing wellbeing and inclusiveness. But there is more we can do to flourish not just now but in the long term. With careful planning we can ensure that future generations thrive and prosper. We need to focus on sustainable futures, encouraging diversity and building partnerships. This will be my focus as your representative on council. My strengths lie in connecting people across barriers, building relationships, and facilitating change. My broad experience, within the primary sector, central government, the military, and innovative industries, enables me to bring a wide perspective to the decision-making process and better outcomes for everyone in our district.
