Meet Marama Pairama who is the Advocacy Navigator on our Wellness Team, “Our service provides support for all whanau who are struggling with any health issues. We are an outreach service which can awhi whanau in their own homes making the process more comfortable to engage with.”
Before becoming part of our team, Marama was a Health Promotion Coordinator, where she worked with whanau struggling with smoking, alcohol, drugs, nutrition, and physical activity. She comes from Matauri Bay which means, as mana whenua, she has an invested interest in her whanau hapu and iwi of Whangaroa.
In her spare time, Marama enjoys walking, being at the beach, watching sunsets and the full moon rising, getting out on the moana fishing, and gathering kaimoana. Her favourite part of working at Whangaroa Health Services is the whanaungatanga, and we love having you here on the team!
