I have been Chief Executive of Kidney Kids for more than six years and have served on the Board for eight years. With 40 years’ experience in the commercial sector, my focus is on ensuring Kidney Kids is a sustainable organisation, so we can continue to support the growing number of Kiwi children with various forms of kidney and urinary tract conditions.
Kidney Kids is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1990. It is a nationwide organisation, passionate about providing support to children, young people, and their families experiencing the difficulties of kidney disease. Although our team is based in Auckland, we travel nation-wide to meet with our kidney kids and their families.
As a small charity with just five staff, Kidney Kids relies on the generosity of the public through donations, as well as grants from community organisations and the support of corporate partners.
I’ve worked across a number of industries over the course of my career but my role at Kidney Kids and the not-for-profit sector has been the most fulfilling. I work in a Fundraising and Administration role where I manage the Grant and Foundation applications as well as looking after accounts and administration.
I love working with our team and supporting our kidney kids and their families on their journey with kidney disease.
