Meet the Team
Hi, I’m a PGY 6 Surgical Registrar soon to start Urology training. Married with three young children, I came to medicine after first working as a secondary school Science teacher.
I’ve previously held advocacy positions for RMOs at both a local & national level. I support the principles on which STONZ were founded, so becoming a delegate was an easy decision.
With my background in teaching, I am always interested in projects that pertain to education & progression in training. I’m particularly interested in advocating for the needs of pre-training Interns and Registrars to ensure the road to career progression is kept as smooth as possible.
Kate is responsible for the operational management and strategic leadership of STONZ i.e. putting the Executive teams plans into motion.
As well as managing her husbands construction company, Kate was also part of the Northern Regional Alliance team holding a number of roles there over the years including Allocations and Training, Operations Team Leader, and Workforce Development. Prior to joining STONZ Kate worked at Christchurch International Airport in the People and Culture team.
Senior RMO Advisor and DHB Liaison
Janelle is our RMO and rostering specialist and joined us in 2020 after 5 years with CDHB, firstly as the Surgical Coordinator and then as the RMO Support Team Leader.
Janelle studied Human Resources and got her foot in the door at CDHB starting out in the HR Team so brings a huge knowledge of the DHBs and the RMO workforce with her. When Janelle’s not working you’ll find her hanging out with her dog or helping out the Scout Group where she is a leader.
