Ko Julie Robb-O’Connell tōku ingoa.

Kia ora I’m Julie and hail from around the motu. The Hokianga in the far north, Rotorua and Waikato, and I reside in the Palmerston North area with my whānau. I am a māmā of 5 and a partner of 26 years.

I have a background in Midwifery, health care, tertiary education and kaitiakitanga / bicultural professional supervision. I have been providing support while working within the Manawatū area, and in communities for the last 18 years.

At Te Amo Atawhai I am privileged to be the Kaitohutohu Ahurea (Cultural Advisor) and providing a Te Ao Māori worldview, in upholding our Te Tiriti obligations as health care service providers to Māori and all people.

Mauri Ora.

Kia ora! My name is LaToya, also known as Toya. I’m excited to join Te Amo Atawhai as Kaiwhakahaere. With 10 years in the pharmaceutical industry, I value organisation, targets, and team success. Now, I embark on a Pasifika and Māori-centric healthcare journey to contribute to those in need.

Passionate about helping others, I discovered my calling in healthcare over a year ago. By embracing a Māori-centric approach, it will allow me to connect with and support my people.

Upholding our mana is key; it encompasses personal power, integrity, and the worth of Māori individuals. As Kaiwhakahaere, I'll integrate cultural competence, respect, and awareness into our practices at Te Amo Atawhai, where we’ll create an inclusive space honouring Māori values and customs. This leads to improved health outcomes and overall well-being.

My commitment is to provide culturally appropriate care within a Māori-centric framework. With a genuine desire to help, experience, and dedication, I'm honoured to be a part of Te Amo Atawhai. Together, we'll make a positive impact.
