Daniel Umaga

Pacific Community

Development Coordinator

Arthritis New Zealand

Talofa lava, my name is Dan Umaga. I was born in Newtown, Wellington in the 1960s. I am a first generation New Zealand-born Samoan. Our family shifted to Wainuiomata in 1965 where I grew up.

I’ve worked in the health sector for more than ten years and did a short stint with Kiwibank. I spent a number years with Quitline as the Senior Advisor Pacific where my role was to support Pacific people to quit smoking. I am pleased to be able to continue that passion to help improve the lives of Pacific people here at Arthritis New Zealand in the role of Pacific Community Development Coordinator.
