Malo e lelei. I am Kiwi-born Tongan. I am a fully qualified and certificated teacher. Family is very important to me, so I believe in working in partnership with families/Wh?nau to ensure their children have every opportunity to grow and learn. I love seeing the sheer enjoyment and wonder on children’s faces when they discover something new or master a new skill.

I started working for Kids Create in June 2020 and have seen the home-based grow into an amazing place for children. We all work extremely hard to ensure that children are cared for and educated to a high standard. My favourite curriculum area is books/story time and I love inspiring children to discover the joy that words and books can give them.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband at the beach or fishing. We also do volunteer work.
