Monique Meadows:

During my career I've always wanted to make a difference to peoples lives. I've been successful in facilitating employment and life-skills to pathway people into employment. I have a solid background in the adult education sector where I provided strategies to adult learners to overcome learning barriers. I wanted to teach 'Discover your Family History' as I'm passionate to help others preserve their family history to keep memories alive within their family / whanau. I've been on my own journey researching my family history, discovering a skeleton or two and finding some really nice stories for my family to treasure. I would be privileged to work with adult learners and help provide strategies to discover their family history.
