On Thursday night we inducted two new members to Papakura Rotary. Welome to Lisa and Paul.
Dr Paul Catlow
Paul has come to us from England and has been living in in New Zealand for 1 year. Paul has been in the profession of audiology since 1993.
Paul worked originally in the national health service mainly in London’s major hospitals. He completed his master from University College in 2001 and set up a practice in audiology, specialising in rehab.
Moved to Florida in 2016 for his Doctorate, which Paul completed in 2016. It was when Paul was doing his Doctorate that Angela Woolfe made contact with him online to encourage him to work in New Zealand. Angela says “We are delighted that Paul is joining our team, and confident that the community will benefit from having someone of his calibre helping them care for their hearing”. Paul’s expertise is in the management if tinnitus and balance issues. So if you have ringing in the head, then this is the specialist to visit.
Paul has had some involvement in Rotary having been is Rotarian for a short time in the UK. We look forward to getting to know Paul and his wife Belinda.
Lisa van den Brink
Lisa has lived in the area since she was three and grew up in Karaka. She and her brothers attended Rosehill College.

Until recently, Lisa has been managing her  farm alongside raising her two sons, Dom and Oliver. Now the boys are teenagers, she is able to spend time volunteering and gives her time to the Selwyn Homestead, at Breakfast in Schools and is looking forward to being an active member of our Club.
