Tena koutou. My name is Jaime Rose-Peacock. I am so excited and proud to be part of the BOT for Matua Ngaru.
My family and I are lucky to live a hop, skip and jump from school – One of my favourite things every morning is walking my daughter, Charlie, into kāinga wheke and seeing the excitement of each day. I get to see the wonderful interaction between the Learning Coaches and Learners, see what projects are on the go and then to walk away knowing that my daughter has the privilege of being at such an amazing new school, with so many opportunities.
My husband, David, is in the military. He travels a lot with work, and it was important to me, to find a balance in our lives, where I could see my daughter to school each day, be home with her at the end, get to take her to her activities, and be with her during school holidays. I have been blessed to bring that vision alive by starting up my own companies. With self-employment and the relative flexibility that it has given me, I try and put as much into Charlie’s life as possible: through sports, hobbies and school. Hence, I have put my very willing hand up to be part of the MNS Board and I am so humbled that I was elected to be part of the team. Having the opportunity to help with the future of Charlie’s school, at such a foundation stage, is an exciting prospect.
I have worked across a wealth of roles in my twenty years in the workforce. The majority of my recent roles have been in leadership in the Health Sector. I currently own and run two companies – one is Marbles Business Solutions, a consultancy which offers Human Resources, Employment Relations and Organisational Behaviour advice to small businesses. I have recently established The Adelphi Project, which helps guide individuals towards professional wellbeing (career coaching, CV/Interview skills and Employment Advocacy & Representation). I am passionate about all things to do with employment justice, whether that is by representing the Employer or Employee. Finding a balance is satisfying.
I have also enjoyed being in governance over the past four years’ experience serving on a number of boards. These include the Helensville Women & Family Centre, Massey University Extramural Student Society (President) and Muriwai Volunteer Life Saving Club (MVLS). I am also Welfare Officer for MVLS and heavily involved in Children’s Protection. On a Sunday, you will also find David and I down at Muriwai in Charlie’s Under 10 Nippers team (with him as Coach and me as Manager) I have a passion for boards which have a social welfare aspect. I am all about helping create “the change you want to see” and for me: governance allows me to work at a high level to help company’s steer in a strategic direction and with ethics and best practice at the forefront of those strategies.
I am excited to be part of the MNS Board to bring my passion and commitment to the team. I am driven to leave a legacy within the organisations I serve – whether that is big or small. Knowing I have helped serve an organisation makes me incredibly satisfied and proud.
