My name is Navi and I am half Cook Island and half Fijian Indian. Born in New Zealand, my parents migrated here when they were 18. I come from the villages Tupapa in Rarotonga and Ba in Fiji.
The youngest of 3 siblings, (the favourite) uncle to a niece and nephew, and the father to one fur baby. In my spare time I enjoy catching up with friends, spending time with my family, going to the gym and working on other side projects I have going on.
Born and raised in South Auckland I attended various schools throughout and graduated from AUT with a diploma in Sport and Recreation marketing. I have spent the last four years owning and operating my own small Māori and Pacific inspired eatery - Ika Bowl in Auckland CBD.
Throughout my business journey I found my true passion was in helping others and the business world. I enjoy developing and executing tailor made plans and ideas in order to see others thrive. In other words, filling other’s cups helps fill mine. I am grateful for this opportunity to inspire change and empower others with an amazing and supportive team.
