Meet Your Peers

Ellie

I first began my journey into health and social services at the age of 17 when I graduated with my first certificate in human services in 2007. It wasn’t until my early 20’s that I began reflecting on my own wellbeing that I started accessing support for the struggles I was experiencing.

Today, I blend the knowledge that I gained from tertiary studies with the wisdom of my own experience to work alongside young people who continue to shape the way I practice.

I was born in Switzerland, I have two older siblings and I currently have 3 little nibbling’s and 2 more due in 2018. I really enjoy cooking and the simple things in life, but most of all I enjoy the company of others and our natural surroundings.

Stacey

I’ve worked in the mental health and addictions sector for many years, and my story of overcoming mental health struggles, and finding hope in recovery, is woven into the ways I support others.

I’m a mum of 3 girls – 25, 21 and 17, I enjoy spending time with whanau, I’m a big reader, and I LOVE to eat! 

Hope and respect are important, and I also think it’s OK to have fun too.  I’m passionate about supporting others to find their strengths, their voice and their way forward.
