Kia Ora kotou,
Ko Whakatangata te Maunga, Ko Rotokakahi te awa, Ko Mātaatua te Waka, Ko Te Rarawa me Ngapuhi te iwi, No Pawarenga ahau, Ko Tyla Goodsell-Matthews toku ingoa.
My name is Tyla and I am a Student Dietitian at the University of Auckland. I am honored to represent Te Kahui Manukura o Kai Ora (Māori Dietitians Rōpū) on the Dietetics NZ Council.
I hope that through my role on the council I can help make positive changes to both support current and future Māori dietitians as well as the dietetics profession moving to be more responsive to all Māori.
Within dietetics I have an interest in Māori health, clinical dietetics and sports nutrition and I am very excited to moving into the profession in the next couple years.
