Massey’s Joint Centre for Disaster Research (JCDR) provides a supportive environment. I love being around the students and staff. We have great conversations and discussions about disaster management and other things.

Massey also provides us opportunities to engage with different organisations and stakeholders through various events.

Emergency management offers different career opportunities in New Zealand and other countries. If you choose to study in this field, my advice is to enjoy it and have fun. Meet new people and engage in the opportunities you have to network.
