Karla Skates

Health Coach

Karla is loving living back on the Coast after returning in 2019, appreciating the people and the uniqueness of the region that makes the West Coast such a desirable place to live. Karla’s spent a number of years on the front line as an ambulance officer at Hato Hone St John. Following this demanding role, Karla taught a range of adult students as a First Aid Instructor before returning to the Coast to take up a role with Women’s Refuge in Buller and work as an HCA for Te Whatu Ora. Karla enjoys helping others gain autonomy over their own health and wellbeing journey and is looking forward to the contribution she can make in her role as a Health Coach.
