Youth Service Manager


I have been working for CCT in Ōtepoti since 2012. I started as a Key Worker, working with adults with intellectual disabilities and/or Autism Spectrum disorder. I quickly stepped up to the challenge of Team Leader in our Independent Living services until 2021, where I changed roles within CCT to Service Manager of youth in Ōtepoti and adult services in the Waitaki District.

Professionally I enjoy the challenge and responsibility that managing a team brings, while ensuring CCT provide a quality service to people we support. I have completed various studies in Business, Management, and Te Reo Māori.

In my spare time I enjoy a bit of DIY around the home and garden, getting out into nature, and spending time with my wife, four kids, and dog.
