Speaks English

Nicola is a Nurse Specialist, mother to two beautiful daughters and a strong voice for children’s health.

She works as a Paediatric Nurse at Starship when she’s not sharing her experience and knowledge with the Tend team. Nic studied Nursing at AUT and has a keen interest in diabetes management. A lover of the great outdoors, she’s very at home in the ocean and has previously competed in triathlons.

Areas of interest:

  • Paediatrics

  • Diabetes

Compassion, empathy and a desire to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients are what guide me in my nursing practice. I believe strongly in a holistic view of health and that there is certainly no ‘one size fits all approach’ to management. I am passionate about working with families to improve healthcare outcomes and supporting future generations to be the healthiest versions of themselves!
