Sharon Kerr

Peer Support Specialist, Aviva

Sharon works for Aviva, an organisation committed to making New Zealand violence-free through supporting social and personal change.

The Kerr motto – sero sed serio –translates as “late, but in earnest” and at 53, Sharon empathises with this entirely, saying “I’m a late bloomer; my earlier years could be described as troubled and misspent. I’ve moved past many things, especially my own demons and behaviours, as well as adversity, heartache and addiction. 

My story is about a journey; from hopeless to hopeful, from unwell to well, from service user to service provider”.
