Charli Crocker


Charli’s career in Health & Safety, First Aid and Risk Management was shaped from many influences. Initially she trained as an early childhood educator in 1988, through to 1994 which established her passion and awareness of the need to create safer learning environments for our children.  This was enhanced while living in the UK, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and subsequently Africa and being entrusted with children within diverse family environments – and latterly becoming a mother, made her even more conscious regarding health matters and child disability.  This paved the way to create pediatric first aid courses to her fellow early childhood educators.

While living in Africa for 18 months, predominantly Malawi, she was given the opportunity to train and qualify as a dive instructor.  This a realm where safety and safety procedures are paramount, accentuated in a third world country with very limited resources and understanding with heavy reliance in human ability.

Charli is very fortunate to have worked in many sectors within NZ Industry and Business, including forestry, penal institutions, Engineering, Aviation, DHB’s, ECE to mention a few. she has also collaborated with a variety of organisations in providing solutions and promoting positive attributes in senior management, and goal setting to promote continuous improvement within their businesses.

Now because of subsequent qualifications and professional development she is looking forward to working alongside more communities/organisations to assist with valuable leadership, wellness and linking in with mental health services in Aotearoa.

 Charli attributes my skills as a competent educator in all aspects of Health and Safety due diligence to a combination of learning & training, but importantly having been exposed to a diverse array of great people; cultures; experienced aspects of human development – or lack of; observing that development and being instrumental in that development is what we label:  ‘Experience’. Gained and Earned.

In essence:  this is Charli  “Im passionate about providing quality education”
