I joined Bellyful because I was looking for an organisation that would enable me to give back to the Tauranga Community which I have been fortunate enough to call home for the last 10 years. A friend mentioned that they had just received the gift of a home cooked meal from Bellyful. The lightbulb went off and I thought that’s how I can give back and so entered my details to become a volunteer.
Little did I know that the Tauranga branch needed a branch co-ordinator and it was recognised that my 9 years of Event & Small Business Management would provide the ideal skills to take on the role and the seed was planted.
Not one to step away from a challenge I said Yes and here I am!
As a true ‘foodie’ and with strong family values I know the importance of sharing a meal together so being part of a team of awesome volunteers that helps provides this to families is something that resonates with me.
I live in the country with my partner and our fur babies: a cat, dog and 5 chickens. We are very fortunate to have our family living in Tauranga so he and I play an active role in the raising of our young nieces and nephews.
I moved to Tauranga in 2013 with my husband and first child. With a young family in tow I wanted to do something else but couldn't commit to paid employment - this is where Bellyful fit the bill perfectly. It's an organisation close to my heart and something I can relate to all too well! Knowing you have some food handy on those crazy days with a new baby and young family can mean the world of difference. I've been with Bellyful since 2015, helping in various roles while raising my three young children. Now, with my youngest at kindy, I'm ready to take on more responsibility in our very busy Tauranga branch. I would love it if everyone I spoke to about Bellyful knew who we were and what we did. My goal is to continue spreading the news about Bellyful and encourage others to join our amazing charity. Other interests include my garden, cake baking, reading and good times with friends and family. I'm also a keen runner and the running captain at the local Mt Runners and Walkers club where you'll find me every Tuesday and Friday morning.
