Debra Jamieson – Staff Spotlight June 2023

πŸ˜€ Staff Spotlight πŸ‘‹ Kia ora to Debra Jamieson!

TRANSCRIPT: Hi! I’m Debra. I’m based at Deaf Aotearoa’s Christchurch office, and I’m a Children & Youth Services Facilitator. I’ve been working here for almost 8 years! I really love my job!

What do I do? I travel – fly to the West Coast then travel around the area for home visits, drive to South Canterbury doing similar, and also the same in Christchurch. We offer online sessions on Zoom for the families’ lessons, this can also include extended whānau! I also set up First Signs’ Family Gatherings, so the families can interact, get to know each other and make new friends, while doing some activities.

In my free time, I love to be at home. I do the gardens and catch up with friends for a coffee (or wine!). I’m a very social person! I also like to go on walks, hikes, or go on walks with my friends and their dogs – with my dog. As well as spending time with my family. I’m such a busy lady!
