I’ve been on the Board several years. Working with a team of quality and experienced people, including the Executive officers, is stimulating and a great pleasure. I know that Community Connections is in good hands and good heart. I am a lawyer in practice in Porirua. Part of my Court work includes being appointed to represent individual disabled people under the Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988. My involvement on the Board also gives me a wider perspective and appreciation of how people in New Zealand living with disability are provided for.
