Tiana is currently in her final semester, at AUT, studying towards completing a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Health Promotion. Her passion is to help rangatahi realise their full potential, through exploring nutrition, physical activity and mental health. Tiana completed her student placement at Hāpai te Hauora where she gained hands-on experience and an understanding of how Māori public health operates at a policy, strategic and regional level.

Outside of work, Tiana supports North Harbour Softball through scoring and being No. 1 Cheerleader for her brother. She loves taking photos, mostly of sunrises, sunsets and her darling niece.
