Kia ora, I have been working for the Department/School of Management at Massey University for 15 years. I have taught in the areas of tourism/hopsitality, services, general management and HRM. My research interests are diverse including guest retention in hotels, Maori women and their perceptions of health and marae, and Maori entrepreneurship and management.
