Tammie Metcalfe started her working life behind bars as a Corrections Officer for Manawatu Prison when she was only 20.  She then transitioned to the non-profit sector, working for Birthright, one of New Zealand's oldest NGOs before making the shift to Melbourne where she focused on helping vulnerable children with complex needs. Returning to NZ in the middle of Covid-19 pandemic, Tammie decided to devote her skills to supporting our young people in the MTFJ programme.  

Tammie's experience has made her resilient and unshakable. She has witnessed the most difficult aspects of life, which has fuelled her determination to be a strong advocate for rangatahi and their families. Her goal is to prevent the recurring cycle of crisis situations from one generation to the next. 

Beyond work, Tammie‚Äôs a busy Mum to twin girls and can be found spending her free time out in the garden, landscaping her new home or with her head in a book as she pursues a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Social Anthropology.
