I am a senior compliance and risk management professional with extensive experience of developing, implementing and overseeing best in class compliance and governance programmes. I recently moved to BNZ as a Manager in the audit function having spent 14+ years at Fonterra in audit, policy and governance roles.
I have a strong passion for working with youth and have spent time mentoring within the Foundation for Youth Development. I previously spent time working with and teaching youth in the performing arts prior to moving to Auckland in 2008.
I am of Maori descent and now live in Onehunga, having also lived in Australia and the UK. I have also spent a significant amount of time working abroad in South America, America, Europe, China, and South East Asia.
I am passionate about music, health, exercise and general wellbeing and in my spare time I can regularly be found working out at a community based organisation in South Auckland.
| Debra Law- Trustee
I am the principal of Law & Associates, which is a law practice based in Manukau. The firm, which was established in 2010, focuses on all aspects of property, commercial and family law. Prior to that I was a partner of Wood Ruck Manukau. In the course of working in the Manukau community for 18 years, I have worked with victims of domestic and other abuse and am very aware of the need for organisations such as Counselling Services Centre.
I feel it is important to give back to the community which is why I was happy to accept an invitation to be a member of the Board. I have a grown up family and live in Karaka along with a number of dogs, horses and alpacas.
