Tessa has worked for Te Kupenga Hauora - Ahuriri since November 2001 where her role as Finance Manager led her into her current role where she was appointed Operations Manager in 2018. Tessa loves the Organisation and the kaupapa of serving the community and Māori whānau.
She had this to share, ”Through my role I will ensure that our Organisation maintains its reputation in the community and is always accountable, thus ensuring that we provide services to and for the community we service.”
He aha nga mea pai ki ahau. Ko nga mahi a rehia, kapa haka – waiata, wananga reo. E tautoko ana taku whanau me aku marae. E purei ana I taku tamaiti. E tautoko ana hoki taku iramutu I tana mahi takaro whutupaoro. E purei ana I taku iramutu iti.
Tessa’s proudest achievements are her family, her son.
She has a Whānau Ora Diploma.
