Eileen works for Te Whatu Ora Taranaki and has been heavily involved working within the Covid/Pandemic space.
She has a background in nursing and has spent many years working within the health sector.
Eileen is currently working alongside other Taranaki iwi members on Te Punanga Ora to initiate change and better health outcomes for whānau following the transition of the health system into Te Whatu Ora (HNZ) and Te Aka Whai Ora (MHA).
One of the highlights this year includes signing up to Ka Uruora Housing Scheme which can assist whānau get into their own home.
Eileen’s aspirations for Ngāti Maru are to prosper as an iwi, providing opportunities for education, wellness and career pathways. She would also like to see us continuing to move forward, capitalising on opportunities that see our uri prosper.
