Receptionist

I was born and bred in Japan and came to NZ as a working holiday maker at first place. I was charmed by NZ people, multi- international culture and beautiful nature and I feel so lucky to live here as a resident now.

I enjoy dealing with people and love to help them.

Although I’m not a medical professional but I’ve been interested in medical world. This is my great opportunity to learn a lot of things about it though the job.

I love travelling and one of my bucket list is travelling around NZ and Japan.
