Ms Kristy Parrenas

Registered NurseNZRN, ACNM

Most of Kristy’s formal training was completed in the Philippines where she primarily worked in an obstetrics and gynaecology ward with babies and children. After moving to New Zealand in 2012 she completed the NZ nursing criteria in Whangarei and proceeded to start her NZ nursing career in the Waikato Hospital emergency department – first working with paediatric short stays then shifting to care for adults. In 2018 Kristy became associate charge nurse manager – a position she held for a long tenure in the emergency department. Nowadays Kristy is a new mum and is enjoying working part-time with the Emergency Consult team, where she finds fulfilment in being able to assist and advocate for clients in the community in a vulnerable time of their lives.
