Health and Safety Professional
Wellington Region


I am an experienced Health & Safety Professional with over 7 years’ experience of Health & Safety Management within MPI Defence, Corrections, Private consultancy, and Local government.

I have held several challenging roles that have provided me with a range of skills, experiences and expertise that have proved to be transferable and are suited to a variety of roles and settings. These have afforded me with a comprehensive grounding regarding both operational, health & safety, and strategic health & safety matters.

These encompass business planning, risk and hazard management, health & safety management, achieving targets, incident management, investigations, staff management, staff development, staff training, and relationship management within governmental environments.

An assessment exercise using the Myers Biggs, psychological assessment tool determined that, I am:

Frank, decisive, assumes leadership readily. Quickly see illogical and inefficient procedures and policies, develop, and implement comprehensive systems to solve organisational problems. Enjoy long-term planning and goal setting. Usually well informed, well read; enjoy expanding their knowledge and passing it on to others.
