Pathway Manager (Service Industries)

As the Pathway Manager, it is my role to find innovative and exciting new ways to give students the skills they need to excel in their chosen career. I am passionate about discovering and implementing new and engaging ways of teaching.

Born in Kaitaia, I am a Northland local and have worked in restaurants, cafes and bars across the region. I have a hospitality background, having worked both in front of house roles and as a chef. Prior to starting at NorthTec in 2010, I worked as a chef for 25 years, both locally and internationally and owned a café and catering business in Whangarei.
