Veronica finds her interactions with whānau, kaumātua, and working alongside other family services very fulfilling and explains, “I will listen to whānau, help identify their needs, develop a plan, and work towards achieving realistic outcomes with them.”

She encourages family members to always seek help. “If you pass by a building and see the word ‘Hauora’ – check them out! You’ll be amazed at what help is available [to you].”

Veronica values quality time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, watching them grow and learn is "just so beautiful." She also enjoys planning outdoor event-based activities as a way of catching up with friends.

Being proud of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and remaining in the workforce are her most significant personal achievements.

Veronica holds a Certificate in Hauora.
