My Whanau are from the West Coast and I feel privileged to be living in such a beautiful place. I am a mother of 7 and have two awesome mokopuna. My whanau are my world and I feel truly blessed. My spare time is spent with my whanau, spending time walking up the awa and playing darts which I share with my whanau.

 I'm Carolyn Fechney. I have lived on the Coast for nearly 15 years since graduating as a Registered Nurse. I have four children and one cat, all of which receive my unconditional love. I love being outdoors, which Poutini Waiora fulfils that need. I have a special interest in diabetes and nutrition. I like to see whanau take control of their health and wellbeing and enjoy life, and for those that need a hand, it is a privilege to be able to help as one of the Registered Nurses for Poutini Waiora.

My name is Sharon Arohanui Marsh (nee Teika). I was born in Greymouth and have been married to my husband Richard for 42 years we live in Hector, Westport.  We have 3 adult children and 7 mokopuna. Our eldest daughter passed away from renal cancer in February 2018 and our youngest mokopuna was born sleeping.

I am very fortunate to have my son and 3 of my mokopuna living close to me in Westport. My youngest daughter lives in Brisbane. I have been employed by Poutini Waiora for the past 13 years in the Kawatiri office delivering both health and whanau support.  I am president of the Kawatiri Maori Womens Welfare League and a Board Member of the Granity Board of Trustees.
