Ko Jackie Kutia tōku ingoa. He uri ahau nō Ngāpuhi.
I'm Jackie Kutia (nee Moses), your Events & Community Manager at Whāriki. Born and raised in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland, I hail from the beautiful township of Rawene in the Far North.
With over a decade of experience in the events industry, I have discovered my true passion lies in fostering meaningful connections and orchestrating memorable celebrations. What attracted me to Whāriki was our shared vision: to uplift and support Māori business owners and professionals. This resonates deeply with my personal values of empowering our people through impactful and purposeful events.
Outside my professional endeavours, I co-manage Tekotiri Limited, a Māori pakihi, alongside my husband Caleb. When I'm not fully engaged in mahi, I take pleasure in cherishing moments with my husband and our wider whānau.
I am genuinely enthusiastic about forging connections with each of you, listening to your stories, and collaborating towards our collective success. Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or Te Hapori o Whāriki – our vibrant community platform.
