Our Leadership Team
Chairperson and Founder
My vision is to advance mathematics education for children and young people within New Zealand, creating lifelong opportunities and increasing their choices, for a brighter future.

I believe in communities coming together to help our children and young people and, through the work of Mathematics For A Lifetime, we can achieve this.
