We have recently moved from the UK and we are already in love with New Zealand. I am excited to get to know the area and settle in to the local community. I have an interest in all aspects of General Practice and getting to know my patients is what I love best about being a GP. I feel lucky to be able to work closely with my patients in their journey through health.
I trained in the UK and have been working as a GP for 15 years down in Cornwall, the land of pasties, tractors, surf and mizzle (rain and mist!)
Most of my spare time is spent playing with my two young boys splashing in the water or challenging each other to go down the highest slides we can find! I love being in the water – swimming, bodyboarding or snorkeling. As a family we love trying new foods and cooking together – not always successfully!

My name is Gaye and I am the Nurse Manager at Tawa. Many of you will have seen me around Tawa as I have lived here since 1976, first with my parents and siblings then since 1983 with my husband and our family. 3 of our 5 children are currently residing overseas in Canada, Perth and London.
Tawa Medical Centre has been my 2nd home for the last 15 years. Working and caring for my community over this time has been both a rewarding and challenging job. Outside of work hours you will see me walking my beagle around Tawa regardless of the weather.
Triage Phone Nurse
Kia ora, my name is Meadow.
I have been a nurse since 2015 and have worked for the most part in primary care, community and older-persons rehabilitation.
I come from Upper Hutt, where I raised my two sons. I enjoy exploring the many bushwalks around the Hutt Valley and cycling the beautiful Hutt river trail.
In my spare time I like to read, cook, dabble in art and craft, and spend time with my family.
I am glad to be joining the Tawa community and look forward to getting to know each of you.
I qualified as a registered nurse in Christchurch in 1984.
I worked mainly as a surgical nurse prior to having some time off when we had four children.
I began work at Tawa Medical Centre in 2019. I feel priviledged to be part of this great team and enjoy the variety of practice nursing.
I enjoy spending time with my family. I like to run and go on bushwalks to keep fit.
Kia Ora, my name is Megan.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing from Massey University in 2020.
I am passionate about working in Primary Health where I am able to provide both preventative health care to those who are well, and support and education for those living with long-term conditions.
On my days off I enjoy spending time with my family, movies and gardening.
Kia ora! I’m Brit, a Practice Nurse here at TMC. I am originally from Feilding, a small town in the Manawatu, and moved to Wellington to start my nursing career about three years ago.
I love to learn and am currently pursuing postgraduate qualifications. In my spare time I keep active. Team sports are usually my first choice of exercise because its a great way to have a laugh with some friends.
You could also find me tramping or crafting on the weekends!
Health Improvement Practitioner
Primary Care Practice Assistant
I was born in Gisborne and moved here to Tawa when I was 8, and have been here ever since! I joined TMC at the beginning of 2018 and I really enjoy getting to work alongside some fantastic people and be part of the Tawa community.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling around the country, walking my favourite dog Blue and spending time with my friends and family.
I have been the Practice Manager of Linden Surgery and Tawa Medical Centre for over a decade.
It is inspiring and a pleasure to work with teams from both sites who are committed to providing the best medical care they can to the Linden and Tawa communities.
Team Leader Medical Receptionist
Head Medical Receptionist
I joined the Tawa Medical Centre’s reception team in 2019 after moving to the Wellington region. I spent many years working in customer service roles, mainly in the airline industry. I enjoy interacting with people from all walks of life. I am a mum to my son born in 2010 who keeps me busy outside of work. I was born in the Netherlands and speak Dutch fluently.
Hi I’m Olivia, one of the receptionists here at Tawa Medical Centre. I have lived in Tawa since I was born and it’s great to now be even more apart of the community here. I have a love of helping people and customer service so I’m so glad to be one of the receptionists here, seeing lots of familiar faces around and helping you all with your medical needs. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, going out for food and cocktails with my friends and watching movies. I’m sure I’ll see you all soon around here at Tawa Medical Centre.
