Meet the Delegates at your DHB
Matt is an ORLHNS (ENT) trainee. He enjoys traveling (when the borders are open), eating and spending time with his friends and family. He is motivated to make work and training a rewarding and enjoyable experience and doesn’t think we should have to choose between training and life/family.
Email me, call me, yell at me in the corridor, whatever. I want to make training better and can’t do it without our members thoughts and dreams. Always happy for a philosophical chat whilst working behind the scenes on the details. Obviously I have a surgical background, so it is even more important that our non surgical trainees/members get in touch to make sure we’re representing you all
Auckland City Hospital
Aysha is an advanced trainee in General and Acute Care Medicine at Auckland City Hospital. She trained at Imperial College London and worked in England for several years before moving to New Zealand. By joining the STONZ delegate team, she hopes to help improve working conditions for all doctors. She is keen to hear and represent your voice in key RMO issues.
Outside of work, Aysha enjoys competitive ceroc dancing, birdwatching, and trying new foods with her friends.
My name is Carmella; I am a Urology Registrar at Whangarei Hospital in Northland DHB. I am originally from Surrey in the U.K. but have always wanted to live in New Zealand. I trained at Cardiff University and after completing my foundation training I made the decision to move to New Zealand.
I decided to become a STONZ delegate as having worked in the NHS I have seen how easily working environments can become very unsafe very quickly and wanted to join a team that could effectively work to prevent this as well as improving RMO wellbeing whilst getting the most out of training. I believe that good work-life balance is key to being a good doctor. Outside of work I enjoy surfing, diving, hiking and playing netball.

Hutt Valley Hospital
I am a PGY 7 non-training Surgical Registrar at Hutt ValleyHospital.
I have experience in multiple surgical sub-specialties having worked in Urology, Cardiothoracics, Vascular and General Surgery Registrar positions. I am currently living in Wellington with a keen interest in football and surfing.
Hello I'm Michael, I am currently a PGY2 House officer in Wairarapa DHB. I am hoping to pursue Ophthalmology training in the future. I was born in South Korea but I am proud to call New Zealand home and feel very lucky that I have grown up with influences of two such varied cultures; I believe this provides me with unique perspectives that I hope I can use to help others.
I first joined STONZ because I am supportive of the union's ability to ensure efficient training time and safe working hours as well as other merits such as ample parental leave. I decided to become a STONZ delegate to find out more about the union itself as well as being a point of support if other STONZ members run into issues.
Palmerston North Hospital
Hi I’m Dominique, and I’m currently a non-training orthopaedic registrar at Palmerston North hospital. I initially joined STONZ as they support a working environment that values both safe working conditions and promotes training opportunities. I have since joined the delegate team with the aim to advocate for junior colleges as they progress through their careers, while ensuring they have access to safe rostering that protects their training.
Upper South Island
I’m currently a PGY3 at Christchurch Hospital. Originally from the Kapiti Coast, the South Island caters for all of my hobbies including snow boarding and mountain biking.
I joined STONZ due to its emphasis on caring for both Doctors and patients alike. The team is progressive and transparent, and I look forward to working together to promote positive outcomes.
I am a PGY2 house officer working at Timaru Hospital. I grew up in Central Otago and am enjoying working at a smaller hospital with plenty of access to the mountains.
I joined STONZ as it provides excellent support for the extracurricular courses, learning and exams that are essential to improving and progressing as a doctor.
I strongly value advocacy and encourage all RMOs to make the most of being a STONZ member.
