Ko Barbara Ball toku ingoa.
I was born and raised in Moawhango and raised under the mantle of Ngati Whitikaupeka.
I am married, with four children three Sons and a Daughter, we have two daughter in laws and five beautiful grandsons. My passion for whanau hapu and iwi development has taken me on a number of journeys and this has helped me enhance my skills and experience in strategic and ‘big picture’ thinking, management systems and processes, policy development and administration. I have previous experience as a responsible trustee for whanau whenua as well as an advisory trustee with Te Tumu Paeroa for a local whenua block in Moawhango.
I live locally in the rohe, have a wide circle of whanau, hapu and iwi connections and am willing to bring my commitment, time, experience and skills to the Trust and owners of the whenua to ensure the needs of the owners and the Trust are realised.
