Support Workers

Jonathan Maletino:

Talofa lava, Kia orana,

My name is Jonathan Maletino and I work part time as a community support worker for the Access and Choice service at Newtown Medical Centre. I was born and raised in Mangere, South Auckland before moving to Wellington with my wife in 2014. I studied at Weltec and completed a Bachelor of Addiction Studies in 2017. I enjoy connecting with new people and have an interest in music and sports.

Fiona Findlay:

Fiona is a born and bred Wellingtonian, who apart from a few years travelling overseas, has never left!  She has a background in psychology, obtaining a B.A. Psych at Victoria University of Wellington in 1995 and then going on to work in wellbeing support where she gained her Certificate in Health and Wellbeing at Whitireia Polytechnic in 2005.

Fiona is passionate about waiora (wellness)  from a wholistic perspective.  She is married with two teenage sons and loves spending time with her family and cat, doing jigsaw puzzles and going on bush walks.

Health Improvement Practitioner

Georgia Harrison:

Georgia has completed a Bachelor’s in Occupational Therapy, a Post Graduate Certificate in Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Philosophy, a Diploma in Life Coaching and is a qualified Yoga Teacher. These skills blend nicely to infuse and support her work as a Health Improvement Practitioner (HIP) here in the clinic. The HIP role provides an in-house support person that any patient of any age can access for free. The HIP can work with you to create an action plan to move towards the things that bring you meaning, purpose and satisfaction with life. Georgia has recently moved here from Dunedin and is excited by all that is happening in her Newtown/Wellington community. In her free time Georgia enjoys socializing, playing music and dancing.
