Cheryl Tovizi - Vice President
Home and Family staff do an amazing job, most of all they truly care about achieving positive outcomes for their clients. In particular I have been in awe of what has been achieved for children who have suffered trauma and receive Child Play Therapy. Staff have been able to help the children come through the other side better able to cope and move forward with confidence.
As a committee member and an IT professional with over 20 years’ experience, I have this year supported Home and Family to obtain and implement a Client Management System which enables them to record information to support client care. It has been a pleasure to be able to assist Home and Family continue their great work and improve efficiency with the aid of technology.
Tēnā koutou katoa,
He uri tēnei nō Ngāi Tahu nō Ngāti Raukawa hoki.
I understand the value and necessity of the work that Home and Family undertake within the community. I am passionate about addressing issues of social justice and community wellbeing and am able to bring a fresh perspective on how Home and Family can best meet the needs of Māori tamariki and whānau. I am currently employed at the University of Canterbury, lecturing te reo me ngā Ᾱhuatanga Māori in the School of Teacher Education.
I really enjoy forward to working alongside and supporting the Home and Family/Te Whare Manaaki Tangata whānau.
I have a background of raising a family and, in partnership with my husband, ran a photography business for 30 years. For a short time I job shared, with my husband, the position of executive director of the NZ Professional Photographers Institute. I now work as a workplace support person with training in critical incident response. I bring a wealth of people skills and passion for the ongoing work of Home and Family.
