Farewell to Jillian Parsons

Posted on July 20, 2022 by Iosis

Recently we farewelled Jillian Parsons, affectionately known to staff as ‘Whaea Jill’.

Jillian joined Iosis in 2006 and worked in a number of social work, facilitator and counselling roles, most recently as counsellor/programme facilitator at Merivale.

The number of lives she has impacted in her time with us is immeasurable. As colleagues and friends, we also learnt so much from this gracious, wise wahine.

Bless you, Whaea, you’re greatly missed. We know you will continue to impact families in your new mahi.
