Tayla hails from the Far North, and describes herself as a connector and a collector of whānau. Before joining our team, Tayla worked in recruitment, event management, and academia – where she became an honorary Aunty for Māori students beginning their tertiary studies at Te Herenga Waka. At Curative, Tayla acts as a guardian for the communities who entrust us with their stories. She’s brilliant at holding space for courageous conversations, and her skills at ‘calendar tetris’ are legendary.
