Maggie has 20+ years of voluntary experience in the sports sector, where she spent many years caring for under-privileged tamariki and whānau. Maggie has always advocated that sports is a great platform for building trust, respect, confidence, and aroha within whānau and the community.

Maggie’s favourite saying is “sharing is caring” and this is evident in the untold hours that she tirelessly works behind the scenes for her beloved Whalers Sports Club where she has held many various positions, including roles in team management, grant funding, fundraising, event coordination and committee positions as treasurer and secretary.

In her professional life, Maggie has substantial experience in banking and finance as well as business and administrative roles over the past 30 years.
