Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do: I love learning. And I love helping others design and deliver learning that helps ākonga/learners to develop ‘human skills’ as well as technical skills. I’m talking about those people skills like critical thinking, working as a team, cultural agility. Right now I’m designing learning solutions for the wine growing industry, training line mechanics to become leaders and helping Te Pūkenga create an Ako Teaching and Learning Framework. Having my own business means I meet a variety of different people and can do a variety of different work!
What do you like about working at Basestation? I love working here because I have a community. I love the ad hoc conversations and learning that comes from a diverse group of people working together! I’m often away training or at meetings out of Tauranga and knowing I can come back ‘home’ to my Basestation buddies is always a great feeling.
Where are you most likely to be found hanging out at Basestation? At a hot desk in the middle of some very cool people, doing different things from me! I’m working alongside people who have had different life experiences and have different passions, so that’s what makes it all interesting. I could be talking about gaming one day, tourism the next or taste testing cider!
If you could add a floor to Basestation what would it be? A dance / yoga studio. I spend way too much time sitting.
What do you do in your free time? Apart from hanging out with friends and family, I enjoy learning languages. I’m currently re-learning Japanese and beginning Te Reo Māori.
Let's end this with an interesting fact about you….. I used to be a flight attendant with Air NZ…which probably explains why I love interacting with different people and never sitting in the same place for too long!
