I grew up in Western Australia, and worked as a mechanical engineer, before moving to my wife’s home of Taranaki. I now manage a dairy farming business. I am a proud father of two young children and spend my limited spare time running on the local trails with other dads.

Joining the board in 2021 and becoming Chairperson in 2023, I am proud to represent Tautoko Tane, Male Survivors Taranaki. I am privileged to be a part of this hardworking team as we continue to build our services in Taranaki.

Ngā mihi manaakitia mai ki nga rangātira me nga kaimahi me nga tāngata whānau whanui katoa o Ngā Tāne Mōrehu o Taranaki – Sincere Greetings to all staff, board, each survivor and your significant others / friends / whanau in Taranaki.

Kia Ora, I’m Rochelle, a proud māmā of three wonderful tamāriki – from teens to toddler. I am on a journey of self-discovery, live in coastal Taranaki and join as a new member of your Male Survivors Taranaki Board with a willingness to learn what it means to advocate. I am fortunate to continue my recent community, mental and public health nursing experience in a role that directly responds to elder abuse around our region.

I look forward in understanding what aspirations Male Survivors Taranaki have to offer our rohe and how, as a Māori woman, I can help to increase delivery and use of its services. For now, I acknowledge your courage in finding out what works for you and the strength to journey each day toward wellbeing for your and your whānau’s sake – he iti, he pounamu.

Assisting where, when and whoever I can

I am of Māori and Polish descent. My life has been devoted to working with people. For 13 years I was involved in the Baptist Church as a Pastor, and then I entered into Chaplaincy within the New Zealand Army for 14 years. I am a qualified Counsellor and I have experience working with people for whom life hasn’t worked out the way they would’ve liked.

I am privileged to have accompanied people through their highs and lows, my passion is to help male survivors live wholesome lives, enjoy their community, and to realise their potential to shape and influence the world in which they live.
