Jess Maindonald

Ngāti Raukawa

Like Whaiora, Jess also spends her time working behind closed doors to keep everything, and everyone, moving in the right direction. Having completed a two-week placement at HUIA in 2021, Jess couldn’t stay away and quickly joined the team in early 2022. Being part of a team that spotlights Māori and indigenous voices is something she is proud to be a part of, and seeing all the talent that lands on our desks is super motivating. Outside work, Jess can almost always be found in the gym lifting weights.
