Moana currently works at Te Pou, part of the Wise Group whānau, following many years spent working within a supported employment service provider.
Moana’s beginnings were in a business support role, providing backbone operations support to employment consultants integrated into community mental health services in Auckland. Following this, as a business support manager, her main portfolio of work was around data – how it can provide insight into how services are performing and where improvements can be made.
Moana is skilled in quality assessments and deeply understands the fundamental building blocks of the IPS approach. In her role as a fidelity reviewer for Work Counts, she has a huge passion and drive to see those with mental health issues gain meaningful employment. She loves seeing people being fully involved in their lives and communities.
