The Judge asked me to tell you specifically how helpful the report was and how well written it was.

Your cultural report was a revelation.  The Crown wanted 8 years. He got 6 and half years. In the end, he got 2y 7m and will be eligible for parole very soon. I can't wait to send you the sentencing notes. He got a really big discount.

Lawyer, Auckland

I am Pākehā and can trace my whakapapa on my mother's side for many generations all the way back to Scotland.  I majored in New Zealand History at University and have a deep interest in exploring the impacts of colonialism, especially on Māori.  I started my journey of learning te reo Māori a few years ago, and hope to continue my learning of this taonga.

I come to the kaupapa of cultural report writing from a background in facilitation, and engaging with hard to reach communities.  My passions are connecting with people, listening to people's stories, and working alongside our clients for better sentencing outcomes.  I strongly believe that to understand behaviour, we need to understand who people are.

Beyond mahi, I am passionate about connecting communities and love being involved in sports, youth mentoring, and events where whānau can all get involved and have fun.
