Ko Janine McIvor tōku ingoa
He kaimahi tauwhiro ahau
Kia Ora my name is Janine. I am a Kaiwhiri Coordinator with Te Whiri Ora. Over the last 20 years I have enjoyed working with whanau and their tamariki in various roles within education and social work. It is a privilege to engage with families, and help them identify their strengths and vision for the future. I also find it immensely rewarding to support whanau to work toward their goals and see them moving forward positively.

Hi my name is Melissa, I have worked in the area of Social Services for over 20 years, currently working from Waipuna. During this time I have worked in the parenting area along with residential and outreach Social Work. I have also run a parenting support group which I really enjoyed.
My passion is in strengthening families by opening up trusting dialogues, walking alongside whānau/families and exploring their strengths.
Outside of work I enjoy and live by the beach, I have two grown up girls and am married, I recently also became a Nan which is the best thing ever!
