Meet the Delegates in your District
I am a first-year radiology registrar in the Auckland region. I rotate through the Auckland hospitals every couple of months so am easily contactable.
I’ve been a STONZ member since graduation because I believe their values are aligned with my own and they commit to helping their members as best as possible. Having first-hand experience recently where STONZ were invaluable in supporting me through a work-based issue; now as a delegate, I aim to be a point of contact for other RMOs so that they can also access the support they need.
As a huge advocate of fair working and training conditions to maintaining a work-life balance; when I’m not at work, you can find me travelling, crafting, and eating out.
I am currently a PGY4 Maxillofacial Non-training Registrar mostly based at Middlemoore, Greenlane and Auckland City hospitals.
I aim to help represent the Dental and Maxillofacial RMO's, as well as form a connection between the Dental, Maxillofacial and Medical RMO's.
I am currently a SET 5 trainee in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Middlemore Hospital. I grew up and studied in Brisbane and moved to NZ to take up a registrar job at Waikato Hospital. I have also worked in Auckland and Christchurch.
I'm keen to help STONZ members make the most of their time as trainees / junior doctors. I think the union is well placed to facilitate appropriate staffing and rostering decisions, with a focus on preservation of training opportunities in the busy clinical environment.
My name is Abhi and I am currently an Anaesthesia trainee in the Northern Regional training program. I grew up in Tamaki Makaurau before moving to Dunedin and Wellington for medical school followed by working in the Hawkes Bay and then moving back home to Auckland.
I am passionate about the wellbeing of doctors and understand the many demands both within and outside the workplace, hence why I joined STONZ to advocate for RMO's and improve our wellbeing.
If you see me around the hospital feel free to say hello, I'm always keen to discuss ideas/issues or have a chat.

Magnus is a PGY8 RMO, and works as Registrar on the USANZ (Urology) training programme. For the 2023 training year he is based at Waikato Hospital.
I became a delegate to help support colleagues looking for face to face support to talk through union queries and problems with in person. I also particularly enjoy supporting medical students, House Surgeons and non-training Registrars as they navigate through the maze of career selection decisions. In my own journey towards training I started my intern years and first non-training Surgical Registrar jobs in Waikato. Since then I have also worked in Invercargill, Dunedin, Christchurch and Nelson, so I have had my share of what it is like as an RMO with a family moving between centres both before and after selection onto training. It has been my pleasure to assist RMOs with their SToNZ and general training questions while serving as a delegate since 2018, across each of the locations in the country that I have had the opportunity to live and work.
If you have a question, or even if you just want a chat, just get in touch and maybe I can get you a coffee. No issue is too small for coffee.

I joined STONZ as I share their values. Their solutions focused approach, transparency and an understanding of training requirements is much appreciated.
Through being a delegate I hope to help my colleagues with any issues they may face. In particular, I hope to help fellow RACP trainees get the most of their training through STONZ's support.
Outside of work you will find me on the side of a mountain either climbing, hiking, mountain biking, running or learning to paraglide.
I am a General Surgical Registrar in Tauranga Hospital, having recently relocated from Auckland. I am a huge advocate for STONZ and the work the union does to help represent RMO's through all stages of their career. I hope that I can be a friendly and approachable delegate for those in the Bay of Plenty. Sing out if you have any questions!
I am a huge advocate for maintaining a good "work-life balance", so outside of the hospital you will find me enjoying the sunshine and keeping fit and active.
