MEET THE TEAM
Kia Ora, we are contracted by Te Whatu Ora - Health NZ MidCentral to provide FREE diabetes and prediabetes education to people with diabetes, prediabetes and their families/ whanau. Working with people with diabetes and prediabetes is very rewarding – as through our programmes, we can assist and empower them to make positive changes to their health and wellbeing. I feel very privileged to be a part of this.
Ngā mihi nā
I love my job working with youth from birth – 30 yrs who have diabetes and their whānau/families. I am continually inspired by their courage and tenacity. 'They are true warriors!’
I organise social events, camps and support groups whereby our community can connect, have fun, take time to recharge and encourage each other on their journey. Support and advocacy is also an important part of my role.
Kristen C White
NZ Registered Dietitian
Good health starts with good kai! As one of the 3 pillars of diabetes management, my mission is to educate and empower people to make informed food choices that improve their health and diabetes. It's a pleasure to work in the community with people who want to 'take action' to manage their diabetes.
My usual hours of work are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I provide administration support for the team. I manage our fundraising applications, course registrations and general office duties.
A busy mum of 5 I know that being organised is the key to success in home and work life!I I work part time Monday – Thursday 8.30-2.30pm but ring to make sure I am there. I look forward to meeting you.
