Kia ora, ko Emma Rankin toku ingoa. I am originally from the Wairarapa region but have lived in Te Tai Tokerau since I was 4 years old. Northland is home to me and both of my daughters were born here at Whangārei Hospital.
I am a Growth Advisor supporting small to medium businesses in Northland to grow. I am proud to deliver the Regional Business Partner Network Programme in our region. I have a varied professional background spanning not-for-profit, corporate, and local government sectors. I have also owned and operated whānau business for most of my adult life. I understand first-hand the challenges and opportunities that our business community face in Te Tai Tokerau.
My two girls and my whānau are my world! One of my biggest joys in life is when our whānau can enjoy delicious and nutritious kai together. I enjoy all aspects of our natural environment and love to explore different parts of Aotearoa with my loved ones.
