Born and raised in South Auckland, Tepara has been a part of Māori Television’s newsroom for a decade now.  Educated at the former Ngā Tapuwae College, she returned to Te Kura Māori o Ngā Tapuwae as a Kaiako Rūmaki Reo for five years, after getting her Bachelor of Education in 1999 from the University of Auckland.

As the Associate Digital Producer, Tepara is part of the team encouraging Māori Television viewers to stay connected wherever they are in the world.  Tepara loves the interactive nature of social media and the ability it gives viewers the chance to get in touch with Māori Television when important events happen in their community.
