We challenge stereotypes by using our powers for good! We place great importance on the connections we build. We are honest, we act with integrity and we love to laugh and see others laugh with us.

Catie

Chief Enthusiasm Officer

I like to go boldly (and noisily) everywhere! I relish a good challenge and love disrupting the stereotype of ageing.  Creating a positive ageing community has been a long term goal of mine.  Reviva was born to showcase the intrepid, the fun and the functional that ageing positively will bring!

I have over 16 years clinical experience & love my job. I have worked in the UK and NZ in both the hospital and community settings. I understand how important our friends, families, interests and passions are to us all.  I believe that there is always a better way – no matter your age.

I am a registered Physiotherapist, President of the Taupo District Chamber of Commerce, mum to a pre-schooler and part time yogini.

Jess

Occupational Therapist & foodie

Growing up on a farm, I learnt from a young age the importance of hard work, positivity and living in a supportive community. This led me to study occupational therapy and I haven’t looked back.

I now have 5 years’ experience in both hospital and community settings. I enjoy the opportunities that working in a community brings and helping people stay safe and independent in their own homes.

I thrive on a challenge and love connecting with people that are passionate about their own health and wellbeing. I am a real foodie and surround myself with people that are self-motivated and enjoy pushing the boundaries.

Victoria

Physio & Gelato Expert

I am a super proud mum of three, ice cream enthusiast, and registered Physiotherapist with 17 years experience in the UK, France and New Zealand. I specialise in orthopaedics, cardio-respiratory and Neuro rehab.

I found my niche working with people in their own homes. There’s nothing that can’t be fixed over a good cup of tea and some creative thinking! I am passionate about making people smile and enjoy life!

I rise to the challenge of engaging our wonderful community in new and exciting ways to be the best they can be, I love to see people happy and thriving! Age is just a number – together we can work hard to achieve your goals!

Valerie

Rehab Assistant & Creator

I have over 12 year’s experience working as a community focused Therapy Assistant (both Physio and OT).  I am passionate about being able to help empower people to become safer and more independent, both in their own homes and out in the community.

I enjoy learning new things from the people I work with, and working as part of a team who help to improve the quality of peoples’ lives.

I relish being involved in our local community activities, where we can gather together to connect with others, challenge ourselves, laugh, create, and help each other out.  I’m a wife, mum of two, still waiting to become a grandma, and look forward to many more adventures in this beautiful central plateau area.

Sarah

Occupational Therapist & Style Guru

I am a registered Occupational Therapist with over 10 years’ experience, working in both community and disability employment settings in Australia and New Zealand.

I have a genuine passion for working with older people in their homes and communities.  I love meeting new clients and building authentic relationships that lead to positive and impactful change in people’s lives.  Through connecting with my clients, I not only get to share my skills, but also learn and laugh a lot along the way. 

When I’m off the clock, I’m running around after my cheeky toddler and enjoying being a new Mum.  I’m always up for a challenge and can’t say no to team events such as Oxfam Trailwalker and the Spirited Womens Adventure Race.  The satisfaction you get from completing an event with great friends is hard to beat, or maybe it’s the cold beer at the finish line!

Araminta

Physio & Expert Baker

I believe that age is no barrier to potential and learning.  Although the needs of our customers may change over time, independence and quality of life can always be improved given willing and open mind. 

I am a Physiotherapist with 17 years of experience in both the inpatient and community setting.  I enjoy the benefits of working in a team based environment, we as individual therapists may not always have the answers but draw on each other’s strengths for the best outcome for our clients and their families. 

My passion is neurorehabilitation and the challenges this population face.  I enjoy listening and learning from the colourful lives of the older population and hope my story will be as interesting one day!
