Valerie

Financial Administrator

Valerie Brown - Financial Administrator

My name is Valerie Brown, I have been working at Piki Te Ora since April 2014. I have been working in Admin/Accounts for 24 years.

Working at Piki has given me the opportunity to apply my knowledge & to be a valued member of a great team of people that are committed to supporting all people/families that enter our clinic.

The ethos here is one that I value, especially since I grew up in Wainoni & know how difficult it can be for some families to have a healthy way of life.

All the medical information/help you need, can start here!

Take Care- Be Well – Stay Healthy!
