BPW Tamaki’s next meeting will be on Wednesday 11th April 2018

Our Speaker for April is

Janet Mikkelsen, Director, State of Grace Funerals.

Janet Mikkelsen worked as a paediatric nurse for 30 years at Royal Children’s Hospital (Melbourne), Great Ormond St (London), Addenbrookes Hospital (Cambridge) and Princess Mary – later Starship Hospital (Auckland).  The majority of this time was in Paediatric Oncology as a staff nurse, charge nurse, nurse educator, and community nurse.  The final 7 years were on the Paediatric Palliative Care Team at Starship as a nurse specialist.  For the past five years Janet has owned and worked at State of Grace East funerals as a funeral director which is interesting work that uses many of her previous nursing skills.  She is a single mother with 3 children aged 18-23 who are all now away at Uni or working and so now lives with her dog and 2 cats.  Her interests include reading, ocean swimming, singing in the Stonefields Choir, finishing a BA in English and History, and she has just started Scottish dancing.

As well as our speaker we have to look at the amended resolutions which I will try to have time to mark the amendments prior to the meeting.
