Our HistoryWhakapapa

Ngā puke ki Hauraki, ka tārehua
E mihi ana ki te whenua
E tangi ana ki te tangata.
Ko Moehau ki waho
Ko Te Aroha ki uta
Ko Tīkapa te moana
Ko Hauraki te whenua
Ko Marutūahu te tangata.

In the early 1990s the health landscape in Aotearoa underwent significant reform, a process which offered the Hauraki Māori Trust Board the opportunity to develop an iwi-based health care service to provide for their local community.

Centred on the unique health needs of the people of this region, the service would place Hauraki whānau and Kaupapa Māori approaches at its core.

The Board established Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki after undertaking a thorough health needs assessment of the Hauraki rohe.

Our PeopleTātou Tangata

Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki is proud of its staff.

Covering clinical, mental health, public health and Kaumātua services, our team members are chosen for their knowledge and skill and their dedication in working towards making the Hauraki a healthier nation.

My background is in Financial and Management accounting.  In addition I have an interest in Information Technology.  I became a Chartered Accountant in 1993 and have worked in a variety of Financial and IT focussed roles in a range of sectors, prior to joining Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki in July 2019.  I have managed many implementation projects and this has been a useful background for the IT transformation projects we have been undertaking.  I enjoy working in an environment where the business support I can offer the organisation helps to achieve our goal of improving the health and well-being of Hauraki whanau.  It is a privilege to be part of this Kaupapa Māori organisation where I have an opportunity to make a difference.

My journey with Te Korowai first began back in 2002 when I was employed as a Kaiawhina in Whitianga and Coromandel. With Te Korowai’s encouragement and support I then went on to train as a registered nurse, which I completed in 2009. Since then, I have worked as a rural primary health care nurse in Whitianga, before returning home to Te Korowai 8 months ago as the mobile nurse. I have recently been seconded to nurse lead, then subsequently to Clinical Services Manager. My passion is people and working alongside them and their whanau to achieve their health and wellness goals and maintain oranga.
