Brett Mckenzie

Residential Support Officer

Hey! I'm Brett and I have been working in the Residential Life Officer position since the beginning of 2014. I am responsible for organising events, facilitating the Live, Learn & grow programme within our Villages and providing pastoral care for our residents. I am a UC graduate with a bachelor of Science majoring in Psychology. During my studies I stayed within halls of residence for three years, so I can relate to most experiences of hall life. I’m really enjoying working with young adults, guiding them through their transition into independence and showing them that you can still have lots of fun while you are studying

Emma Shuti

Residential Life Officer

Hey! I'm Emma, your Residential Life Officer here at Waitakiri Village. I look forward to meeting you all, and working with you to help you succeed in your First year at University with our Live, Learn and Grow programme. In my spare time I like to travel, cook and spend time with family and friends.
