“I enjoyed it there but with this new job I am really enjoying the vibrant atmosphere and face-to-face with people.”
Brooke, who is Te Aitanga a Māhaki and Ngariki Kaiputahi, started with Three Rivers Medical in April 2017.
Her previous job was at the Gisborne office of the Electoral Commission where she helped ensure people were on the New Zealand electoral roll so they could take part in referendums, general elections, and district health board and district council elections.
“With the general election this year it would have been very busy, and I will miss that, but I am really enjoying the community contact I have with my new job. There is always something going on here.”
Brooke and partner Chris are raising four children “who play a lot of sport and keep us busy” says Brooke. She can be found on the sidelines of netball, rugby, dance class, wresting, and rugby sevens just to name a few.
Brooke is employed 15 hours a week and helps out with extra hours when necessary.
