Meet our whānau: Carol Peters

Our very own woman of influence

Carol is our Community Development Coordinator whose ties to 155 run deep; she is 155's former  coordinator who has been involved with 155 since its infancy. 

Her desire to contribute to Whangārei being a better place to live is unwavering.

She holds a PhD in Community-led development and is dedicated to supporting individuals, marae komiti and community groups to achieve their goals. In 2018, she was awarded the Queens Service Medal for her work in the community. 

In between her community work she finds time to follow her other passion; painting and illustration.

Her greatest achievement? "I listen. I listen most to people who are in a tough situation."
