Born and raised in the vibrant metropolis of Manurewa, Nikki is a proud South Aucklander. She has dedicated much of her professional career to leading multidisciplinary teams of people in health and education. With a particular passion for social innovation and systems change, she enjoys zoning in on opportunities to create positive impact for Māori. Nikki is super competitive, naturally a bit of a tutū and is a sucker for any opportunity to play!
