Health Improvement Manager
I am the Acting Manager of the Health Improvement Team, with up to 40 staff working in health promotion, alcohol and Smokefree compliance and on the Auckland regional cervical screening register.
I have been involved in public health for over 30 years, working in government and non-government organisations, and as a health sector consultant. This broad experience has given me an appreciation of the issues vital to the health of populations, and how to achieve gains for public health.
I joined the Auckland Regional Public Health Service in late 2016 after five years at the Heart Foundation. Prior to that, I spent 10 years at the Ministry of Health in a variety of public health roles.
