Having graduated from the NMIT (Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology) Trainee Ranger program, I became a Ranger Cadet with the Department of Conservation in Fiordland.

Following this, I spent three years as a Kākāpō island ranger and loved every minute of it.  I am particularly captivated by the individuality of Kākāpō and their behaviours.

In this new Ranger role I am responsible for ensuring the Kākāpō island infrastructure, and gear, is fit for purpose – supporting the critical work that gets done at these sites.

I am really looking forward to working on new technology and infrastructure with a team of dedicated conservationists.
