Lea grew up with both her parents working in the disability space in a beautiful community Hohepa, back in her hometown of Christchurch. In Hohepa she grew up alongside a very diverse group of people who allowed her to see and experience all the differences the human experience has to offer. Lea also learnt the value of simple actions that could change a person's attitude and set them on the right track to live a good life. Deeply empathetic with a strong love for all people, she brings these beautiful qualities with her to work each day where she strives to encourage and support participants to live their lives to their fullest potential. In her free time, she loves travelling, forest walks, beach adventure and taking photos as she explores. She also enjoys creating, macramé and jewellery.
