Practice Manager

Christine joined Henderson Medical Centre in January 2012 and has worked in a variety of roles within the practice, moving to the Practice Manager’s role in December 2019.

She has previously worked as a Court Reporter, PA to the Principal Youth Court Judge and for a number of years with an environmentally focused theatre in education project. West Auckland has always been her home and she is proud to work alongside an amazing team of doctors and nurses at Henderson Medical Centre, who have dedicated many years to providing quality health care to the local community.

In her spare time Christine enjoys the outdoors, walking her dog, spending time with friends and family, including her three grown children and planning her next travel adventure.

Operations Manager

My name is Dee-Anne and I have been at HMC for over 7 years and have worked in a variety of roles during that time. These include Medical Receptionist, Reception Manager, Practice Administrator and now Operations Manager. Prior to HMC, I have worked in Marketing, Account Management and a variety of customer service focussed roles. I thoroughly enjoy dealing with all people internally and externally along with ensuring our processes run as efficiently as possible in order to provide the very best in customer care.

Being brought up in West Auckland, I am lucky enough to be able to not only work locally, but to have the opportunity to interact with others in the same community and beyond.

Outside of work and in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, staying fit and active by playing Netball, am a keen supporter of New Zealand sport and am currently studying towards a Diploma in Psychology.
