Katherine has worked and/or lived in the Coromandel Peninsula-Hauraki District area for the last 19 years. Her professional background is in supporting local government and community organisations and she brings broad experience to the role. Her appreciation for community-led initiatives and heritage conservation started in 2001 when researching a community development initiative in a traditional Balinese village in Indonesia – one where its past remains part of its essence. Since then, she has continued to be involved in working with and supporting local communities and their development and empowerment.
Katherine is particularly keen to see The Treasury become more accessible and relevant to our diverse communities including our rangatahi | youth.
Master of Social Sciences (Hons), Post Graduate Diploma in Management Studies
