Meet the Team


The Library Team @ Nelson campus

We have a friendly and dedicated Library team, based at Nelson Campus, working to ensure ākonga and kaiako have access to quality, current information in a range of accessible formats. 

Our industrious crew can help with your distance service needs, with suggesting a title for our collection, serials/magazine queries, sourcing interloans from other libraries and with research and referencing support using our Library resources.

I have started my journey with NMIT this year after significant time being a primary school teacher, and principal. My whanau home base is Whakatū, however I live in Waitohi/Picton. My biggest joy is to see others succeed. I can support you in many ways and help problem solve any tricky moments. I hope to be part of your learning journey leading to your graduation. Please come check out our whare pukapuka/ library and wellbeing centre in the Marlborough campus, Budge street. It is a great space to chill, develop wellbeing strategies, feed your mind and check out the lolly station. We are developing our Woodbourne campus ākonga/learner  space. This is going to be exciting! I look forward to hearing your ideas either directly or in Have Your Say (
