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
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.
I’m an Auckland based PGY2 House Surgeon who will be a non-training surgical registrar in Feb. Initially keen for surgery, I’m now on the journey of figuring out my career.
I believe work-life balance is important and enjoy hikes, piano, seeking good food and all things skincare.
I joined STONZ fresh out of medical school because I value how they collectively support RMOs to becoming the best doctors by advocating for education and fighting for safe training.
Having worked multiple part-time jobs before being a doctor, I appreciate the importance of labour rights and wish to continually advocate for RMOs everywhere. So come say hi and help us, help you!
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.
Central North Island
Lower North Island
I am currently a non-trainee Orthopaedic registrar at Wellington for 2020/21, previously at Tauranga, Waikato and Christchurch.
I joined STONZ as I believe their philosophies promote a safe working environment for junior doctors to progress through training, managing fatigue and safe rostering.
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 am now a PGY6 non training surgical registrar. I have spent time as a Registrar in Waikato, Dunedin and Southland working in Urology, Vascular and General Surgery.
I am pleased to have been associated with SToNZ right from its foundation, and the transition to delegate was an obvious move. As a delegate I have been pleased to assist with various working groups for both national and local union issues. I currently also serve as the SToNZ representative to NZMA's DiTC.
Outside of work, Magnus is happily married to a beautiful Brazilian patisserie chef, and they have 3 children.
