'Activity is not the same as doing something significant'

Sharon Devery

Standing in Bay of Plenty

I have lived in the Bay of Plenty for most of my life and have seen so many changes to our region, especially in the last 10 years. We are blessed to have some of the most amazing beaches and I love spending time there with my six-year-old son.

I knew in my heart that I needed to make a difference by becoming involved and I am proud that ONE Party has brought me into their family and are allowing me to have a platform to be heard.

I have recently completed a graduate diploma in mentoring and professional leadership through Toi Ohomai and have started working towards a Masters degree. I also have qualifications in Family Support, Accounting, Finance, and Business.

My work history includes working for Inland Revenue and KiwiSaver, as well as working in the Property Management industry. I currently own a number of small businesses and I have been part of the Kingdom Investors NZ team.

My passions are:

Health – specifically mental health and associated issues.

Housing – tenants/landlords and new builds,

Immigrant issues – no support during the lockdown,

The economy – small – medium-sized businesses.

I believe that New Zealand will flourish under the right leadership and I believe ONE Party will bring God’s Kingdom principals back to New Zealand so that we, as a Nation, can prosper together!
