Yvette

Kia Ora! My name is Yvette but you can call me Yetti. Almost all of my friends (and their parents!) call me Yetti. I work at BodySafe full time as the Programmes Coordinator which is awesome! Before BodySafe I studied Psychology at Auckland University and loved it so much that I ended up doing some postgraduate study there as well. But way way before that I was born and raised in a suburb called Howick which is all the way out in East Auckland; it’s a pretty cool place but traffic into the city can be a bit of a nightmare. I now live on the North Shore of Auckland which is great and has beautiful views. When I’m not working I love going to the gym, watching YouTube and hanging out with my cat who is called Toulouse (like off the Disney movie the Aristocats, if you haven’t watched it you totally should!).

Kia ora

Nō Waitematā ahau
He kaupapa kaiako taku mahi
Kei Oratia ahau e noho ana
Ko Chelsea taku ingoa

Hiya! My name is Chelsea and I live out west in the bush with my dog Mr Mud. He’s super cute and makes everything dirty but I don’t mind. When I’m not taking selfies with my dog I’m an educator at BodySafe which I really love! The students are always teaching me new sayings and words around sex and consent which can be pretty funny when I’ve never heard of them because I’m pretty old. When I was at school I used to play basketball and once I was part of the winning team!

 

Danni

Hey! I'm Danni! I call Waitakere home, and am lucky to be part of the A-MAZING BodySafe team. I love being outdoors, going on hikes, exploring and geocaching.

I've studied Public Health and Psychology at uni and am super passionate about working with young people towards more healthy and accepting environments. In the summertime I patrol as a Surf Lifesaver at Muriwai beach and get to drive the orange rescue boats :)

Kia ora!

Nō Waitematā ahau
He kaupapa kaiako taku mahi
Kei Titirangi ahau e noho ana
Ko Renee taku ingoa

Hey! I’m Renee & I’m an educator at BodySafe. I love hanging out with our students and having great conversations about how we can all be safe in our communities and relationships. When I’m not working, you’ll find me at the beach, chillin’ with my cat Triangle or cooking up a storm, I make a mean lasagne. Ngā mihi.

Lloyd

Hey everyone, my name is Lloyd! I grew up in East Auckland in the faraway suburb of Howick, but now I’m living much closer to the city because traffic isn’t fun. I really really love doing the BodySafe programme across Auckland high schools and talking to awesome young people about consent and relationships. When I’m not doing BodySafe you can usually find me at the gym or at home watching movies and playing computer games.
