Rachel Kapeli

Project coordinator

Background

I built the foundations of my project management skills in the construction sector, where I worked for a few years on the design and build of Vodafone’s cell sites across NZ.  After moving to the health sector, I furthered my knowledge by becoming PMP certified with the Project Management Institute and regularly undertake professional development to grow and maintain that certification. I also have a Diploma in Applied Management, Bachelor of Business Management and a drive for efficiency – which makes me a fairly instrumental part of the team!  

My role

Having started my role within the practice team in 2017, I’ve found it very enjoyable - not only because of the supportive values-based culture, but because what we do here makes a real difference!  My scope of work varies as I work across multiple projects simultaneously, with my favourite being the Equally Well collaborative. I provide project management support to the team, manage special projects and events, and crack the whip to get things actioned. The best part is that my work aligns with my personal values of maintaining human rights, health equity and social justice; whilst also utilising many of my strengths, from project management to creating visual resources.
