Wellington Party Candidate for greater wellington regional council & CCDHB


Our city desperately needs a strong, experienced and competent voice on the Greater Wellington Regional Council – we need to make sure it is focused on the issues that matter to you.

Born, raised and educated in Wellington, this city is my home. I care about the future of our people and I want to help deliver a city, and region, that works for everyone.

Transport options that get you to work or home on time, building houses for our growing population, supporting our wider city’s economy to grow, and putting in place practical solutions to protect our beautiful natural environment. 

That all starts with strong leadership and good governance, and my lifetime of experience will bring the necessary skills to the council table to make a difference. 

I graduated from Victoria University with a degree in Criminology and Sociology, completing further studies in Athlete Career Management, Critical perspective of Political Communications, Dispute Resolution, Mediation, Arbitration, Contract Law and Company Direction.

I served with the New Zealand Police for 18 years as a Detective and Uniformed Officer and currently run my own local Wellington based company specialising in comprehensive communications, media strategy and critical issues management. My clients include corporate, government, high profile individuals, charities, sporting and voluntary organisations.

My skills have proven invaluable in implementation and governance positions, and I’m ready to take on the challenge of representing our community and restoring trust and confidence in our Regional Council.

We need competent and experienced people making the decisions that affect you and our wider communities, and I need your vote and 1st preference to ensure our community has a strong voice at the table.
