Manager of Community Resilience and the Group Recovery Manager at the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office – aka WREMO.
I work with a team who helps communities become better connected and prepared to deal with emergency events like earthquakes and big storms.
I have worked at WREMO for nearly 10 years and before that worked in a variety of international development jobs around the world.
Knowing that my efforts can play a meaningful role in the lives of people during stressful times.
Being stuck behind a desk sometimes when I would rather be working directly with people.
Planning some of the aspects of Wellington’s future recovery.
We turned the idea of a traditional tsunami sign into a giant blue line that crosses the road to highlight where communities should evacuate to after a large earthquake. We worked with the local residents to come up with the idea.
Always listen to the community and what matters to them before embarking on any project. This has been the foundation of many lessons learned for me in my earlier years.
Teaching degree and an MBA.
