Kia ora, I am the Health Coach here at Nelson Family Medicine and I focus on health and wellbeing in all areas of our lives. Prior to this I have had 3 years’ experience in community support work and looking forward to having a wider outreach. I have been in Nelson for two years now moving up from Timaru. I enjoy starting my days with a morning swim at Tahunanui all year round. I have enjoyed being a part of Nelsons community, events, and the many amazing walks we have at our back door!
