A decade of transformation: Tracey-Leigh’s story
Posted on December 13, 2018 by Iosis
Our CEO, Tunumafono Tracey-Leigh Peters, began working at Iosis ten years ago as an Executive Administrator, before moving up the ranks to Operations Manager and eventually CEO in September 2015. Tracey-Leigh reflects on the past decade, the highs, lows and transformations she’s seen during her time at Iosis.
- Iosis’ foster care service has grown significantly, from just one Social Worker in 2008 to a team of three Social Workers working with 25+ children and 20+ caregivers today.
- We now have nine men on our team, up from four a decade ago. In 2008, John Thrush was our only Men’s Programme Facilitator – now we’re fortunate to have three.
- Back then, we had three Social Workers in three local high schools. Today we have 11 Social Workers working across 15 schools in Manurewa and Papakura.
- In 2008, we ran the Toolbox group programme across three age groups. Today we have eight group programmes each term running a wide variety of topics.
- When I started, we had two Ministry of Justice contracted programmes: Parenting Through Separation and Kids Feeling Safe. Today, we are contracted to deliver 12 programmes across South Auckland and Pukekohe.
Congratulations Tracey-Leigh on 10 years of loyal service to Iosis.
