Manager of Strategic Initiatives at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, she enjoys creative writing in her spare time and is President of the Wellington Central branch of P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A Inc.

She credits her parents for their love and guidance, and hopes to see more Pasifika writers’ works filling the shelves in libraries and bookstores and on screen, stage, radio and online.
