My name is Avon Ward. I am married to Don Ward an Englishman born in Zimbabwe and we have a son George. I was born and raised in Marlborough and attended Primary and Secondary School in Marlborough.
I am one of six children; we are of Pacific Island decent. My Father is Fijian and my mother is Samoan. My parents came from Samoa in the late sixty’s with three children and were fostered under the care of Cappy and Karangaranga Macdonald and their whanau at Wairau Pā.
I graduated as an Enrolled nurse through the Wairau hospital based enrolled nursing programme in 1985, in 1996 I bridged to registered nurse through the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology.
For 22 years I was employed with the Nelson Marlborough DHB working predominately as a perioperative nurse. I have been employed with Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua since 2009, initially as the Māori Diabetes Nurse Educator, and in the role of Disease State Management Nurse since 2011.

I was born and raised in Marlborough, married to Wayne de Joux and we have 2 children – Harrison and Leana. I worked for Inland Revenue Taxpayer Services after leaving school, then went into Aquaculture and Fisheries Management in 1993 until 2007 when I decided to leave the demands of the industry to spend more time with my children and get involved in their activities. I worked part time from 2007 in viticulture as accounts administrator until August 2011 when I was employed by Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua Ltd, initially in the role of Mobile Disease State Management Kaimahi before moving to fill the role of Aukati Kaipaipa Coordinator in May 2012.
I studied a degree in Aquaculture and Fisheries Management on a scholarship with Te Ohu Kaimoana and have extensive training in Seafood processing and Management. I play social netball and am involved in masters rowing. I have sat on the Board of Trustees for Mayfield School as Chairperson since 2007.

Ko ahau Te Hauora Tāne Kaimahi o Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua Ltd.
I’m a young 47 year old Nelson born of Te Ātiawa and Kati Mamoe Māori decent. I started my education in Nelson leaving College in the 7th Form for the Public Service. While in Public Service, one of my roles was Training Advisor for the Tertiary Education Commission across the top of the South and West Coast regions. On my release (redundancy) from Public Service, I worked for a Private Training Establishment as a Business Manager then a Coordinator for Te Kahui Matauranga O Te Tau Ihu O Te Waka A Māui.
More recently, I have been employed as a Caregiver at the Wood Retirement Village and also as a gardener. I have been employed in the role of Hauora Tāne Kaimahi for Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua Ltd since mid September 2010 and love it.
I hold the Diploma in Hapū Development and am part way to completing the Degree. I also hold a Certificate in Adult Teaching Foundation Course and am working towards completing the full Certificate.

Prior to my present role of Administration & Promotions with Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua I was employed by Child Youth & Family as a Whānau Research worker to find whanau of the children we had in care. I have also worked in communities across Te Tau Ihu and around New Zealand for over 18 years working with disadvantaged communities, as a practitioner of community development. The skills required for rebuilding the capacity of people and communities I believe will assist the Trust in its future endeavours to rebuild our own people.
I have a ministerial appointment on the Governments Social Response Panel for the Nelson, Marlborough & West Coast region. The Panel is a new approach to the way government funds social services delivered to families and communities across the country.
The Trust supported my appointment to NMIT representing iwi interests across Te Tau Ihu and a Director on the regional tourism board, Destination Marlborough.
