Tayla first came across Endometriosis New Zealand when the ‘me’ programme came to her high school. This programme gave her the knowledge and encouragement to speak out and seek help for her symptoms which resulted in her being diagnosed with endometriosis.
It also influenced Tayla’s choice of career, as she wanted to join her love of helping others with her interest in health to be able to have a positive impact on other girls and woman going through similar experiences.
This lead her to study at the University of Canterbury completing a Batchelor of Health Sciences majoring in Health Education. During the degree, she carried out an internship with Endometriosis New Zealand which further fuelled her passion and desire to make a change for those with endometriosis.
Tayla is super excited to now be a national educator with Endometriosis New Zealand, and cannot wait to see where this new chapter with the organisation will take her!
