Jess - Kaimahi - Writer of Section 27 Reports


I wanted to thank you again for all your help. Your report helped a LOT during my case today and it really did show the Judge a better image of me and my background. I read the report myself and it was really touching to see how you were able to sympathise with my past.

Hi, just an update, I got 8 months home d, starting point of 3.9 years. The Judge gave me 20% discount for my report and read it page to page. Thank you.

I was born and raised in Pōneke (Wellington).  I am Pākehā with Polish ancestry. 

Since completing my degree, I have been able to pursue my passion and dream of creating better outcomes for people within the criminal justice system.  Most notably, this has included curating the Just Speak/Korero Pono multi-media exhibition and working as a researcher on the AUT He Ture Kia Tika (Let The Law Be Right) project.  

I bring insight and empathy to my role as a report writer.  My passion and drive to work in this area stems from my own personal experiences with mental health, drug addiction, and incarceration.  I served one year in prison for supply of methamphetamine before turning my life around in 2011.  I have been active in the AOD recovery network since.  

I believe in equitable outcomes for whānau in the justice system.
