Lynette is the Director, Higher Education and has over 15 years experience in the NZ career profession. Lynette came to AUT as a part-time lecturer on the Graduate Diploma in Career Development. A decision to complete her PhD contributed to Lynette now being full-time lecturer. Her specialist papers include counselling and advanced career theory.
Lynette's academic interests include careers from a Māori perspective, career management, and career construction and identity by indigenous communities. She is also very keen to grow and develop a research culture within the career profession that enhances indigenous models and practices.
My research to date has focused on indigenous models and practices within the career development and education field.
One aspect of this is the influence of the indigenous practitioner when working with clients of a similar cultural background. I am also interested in organisational career management and the convergence with career counselling models and theories.
