Sera’s relationships and ability to understand and relate context across a range of iwi and hapū (Māori tribes and subtribes), communities, businesses, local and central government and philanthropic partners has resulted in collective impact in a number of environmental projects across Taranaki.

Through her work with the indigenous Māori led projects Taranaki Mounga and Ka whakaaraara te tāngata, ka whakaora te wai, ka whakahoki te taonga (bringing our people together, improving the health of our water and restoring traditional food), Sera and her teams are working towards large landscape scale restoration to secure the ecological vitality and resilience of wai (water), whenua (land), taonga species (native biodiversity) and all that these resources provide for.

Sera has a Master of Science in Marine Science, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Biological Science and a Bachelor of Science in Zoology.
