Falesiu is the Whanau Ora Navigator for The Fono’s Pacific Whanau Ora Service Northland, based in Kaikohe. Born and raised in Tonga where she worked as a civil servant, Falesiu moved to New Zealand in the late 1980s and settled in Northland, helping as a volunteer with a playgroup organisation. Falesiu became a qualified social service worker and joined Te Hauora o Kaikohe, working with the organisation as a Family Start Worker for five years. Falesiu joined The Fono in early 2015 when the opportunity to apply for the Whanau Ora Navigator position with The Fono’s Pacific Whanau Ora Service arose.
