Alison Fitzpatrick

Alison Fitzpatrick My life is very full - if I am not at a Tai Chi class, I am usually at music practice or walking my dog.

My partner and I are SPCA foster parents, and I volunteer with Outreach Therapy Pets. My dog and I visit a hospital unit every week to reduce the isolation experienced by residents.

I work for Auckland Council libraries, at a small community library which is extremely customer focussed. I love being a librarian: working with people and helping them find information is such a joy. Every day at work, my aim is to role model kindness, tolerance and generosity.
