Gemma joined Tūtaki in March 2019.  As our Preventions Social Worker, Gemma works collaboratively with our local Family Harm Police Officer providing prevention and intervention support to those who need it along with providing social work support to the rangatahi in our community.

Gemma completed her Bachelor of Social Work Practice at Unitec in Auckland in 2014, which included completing placements both in the youth sector with He Wero O Nga Wahine Teen Parent Unit and Village Sports Academy. She relocated with her family to Stratford in 2016 where she first worked with Barnardos before making the move to Tūtaki several years later.
