Meet The Team
Practice Owner. GP for 25 years. Graduated Auckland medical school 1988. I have loved being a mother to my 2 now adult children. I have worked with my husband of 30 years, a physiotherapist on Emirates Team NZ, Volvo Ocean Race and Olympic Sailing campaigns. I love being part of a team at home and at work to optimise good health of both mind and body with my patients.
I grew up in Auckland and graduated from University of Auckland Medical School. I am passionate about all areas of general practice but have a special interest in sports and exercise medicine, having completed post-grad study in this field in the UK. Outside of medicine, I perform as a violinist and am an avid tennis player.
I am a graduate of The University of Auckland Medical School. I grew up in Christchurch and have been living in Auckland since completing university. I have special interests in preventative health care and women's health. I am qualified to do Jadelle and IUD insertions.
I am full Samoan but have grown up in South Auckland my whole life. I have been nursing for 4 years and have found a special interest in young people, and Maori/Pacific health. My goal as a nurse is to be able to breakdown barriers that hold people back from the quality of healthcare they deserve.
My interests include travel, going to the gym, watching the rugby and hanging out with friends and whanau. Whanau is the most important thing to me - they have taught me to use the power that I have to best help people.
I have been nursing for over 40 years. My empathy compassion and passion is as strong as the day I began. Growing up my Mother was confined to a wheel chair, this has given me extraordinary insight empathy and a wonderful sense of humour. My goals are to empower patients with my knowledge and expertise to lead happy healthy lives.
I worked at Elstree Ave Family Doctors for 14 years. Starting out as the receptionist and progressing to the position

enjoy scrap booking, gardening, reading and walking.
I have worked at the Doctors for three years as a Medical Receptionist, I really enjoy the family environment and variety of the role and meeting people.
I have many years experience in various administration roles, including working in London. I have three children, two at School and one at University. In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, gardening and reading
Kia Orana, having recently joined the team at Elstree Ave Family doctors I bring with me many years of customer service roles, from working in the airlines, as a junior interior designer and an administrator in an early childhood centre. I love being part of a community practice that strives to provide excellent service to our patients/whanau. I have a son who attends college and has an active sporting life for which I provide support, rides to and from venues and food! We regularly travel back to our homeland of Rarotonga to visit my family and in my spare time I endeavour to get out walking, catch up with friends and family and relax by catching up on my favourite programmes on TV.
