I believe that my broad range of experience will be of real benefit to the Community as we move forward.  I have almost 20 years’ experience in the community justice sector, together with more recent experience establishing and managing a range of successful commercial services and small businesses in a new public-private partnership facility in South Auckland. I have developed and maintained strong partnerships with NGOs and not-for-profit organisations, such as Auckland City Mission, Habitat for Humanity and Salvation Army. Earlier in my career I worked as a volunteer with the homeless and at risk youth, and more recently supported volunteers from a range of faith-based groups providing pastoral support for prisoners. I have an appreciation of the huge benefit of creative art and music, particularly to those struggling to find their way through difficult times. I have sponsored and supported a range of art and music projects that not only provide a creative outlet for the artists but also lift the spirit of all those who experience their work. I have a sound understanding of the principles of restorative justice and practical experience as a restorative justice practitioner. I believe passionately in the power of restorative justice as a way of gaining a positive outcome from a negative situation and have had the privilege of witnessing first-hand how a successful restorative justice process can turn lives around. I am delighted to be involved in this work once again.  I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know you over the coming months”.
