Kia ora, I’m Annabel Prescott. I’ve worked in youth health for close to 20 years and have always loved the youth sector for its diversity, vibrancy and innovation, along with the challenges and creativity that comes with working with rangatahi. In my role at Anamata, I manage strategic relationships with our funders, and seek opportunities to develop new services based on emerging trends in youth health. Taupō is one of the best places to live — with epic mountain biking or running trails right on our doorstep. If I’m not doing either of those, I’m generally reading or trying to learn something new.
