Our Community Connector

Katie Burns, Community Connector

Kia ora my name is Katie Burns, I am the Community Connector for MS Otago a role I have been in since April 2023.

I was born in Dunedin and continue to live here with my husband and 2 children. Otago is definitely home for me and we spend a lot of our holidays travelling across Otago in our camper.

I have worked supporting a variety of people over the last 15 years including, people with intellectual disabilities, people with physical disabilities, people with dementia, elderly, children and young adults.

I also completed my counselling training through the Otago Polytechnic in 2015.

I am passionate about supporting people to live their best lives, however that may look for them. 

I ensure I work with all of the people I support with empathy, kindness and compassion and advocate with them to have their voices heard.
