FausettROBYN FAUSETT RGN (Owner)

Robyn was born in Helensville, NZ and is a UK trained nurse (University College London Hospital) who initially specialised in women’s health followed by fertility; project-managing a central London clinic’s (Assisted Conception Unit) oocyte donation programme.

Upon returning to New Zealand in 1999 Robyn utilised her expertise in research, project management and report writing as part of an upgrade to the diabetes service at an Auckland Hospital, developing clinical pathways and implementing new policy. She went on to coordinate a donor egg & surrogacy programme across three clinics based at an Auckland Fertility Unit. She has since been involved in various projects including assisting in the setting up of a ‘work ready’ service for beneficiaries; creating assessment tools, interviewing clients and providing reports with stepped recommendations and community supports for case managers (MSD). She maintains her nursing practising certificate and consults regularly on projects; most recently contracted to research and format a proposal to manage a mother and baby respite and community support service. This being successful Robyn is now a clinical consultant for the service.

In addition, Robyn is accredited with EDEN (Eating Difficulty Education Network) as a ‘Nourish’ body NFNZimage/media awareness programme facilitator, with Jane Bennett’s ‘Celebration Day for Girls’ mother & daughter programme as a provider and with Natural Fertility New Zealand as an educator and a clinical trainer. She is a member of the NZ Health Education Association and the NZ Sexual Health Society.
Robyn spent a number of years as the Vice President of the Natural Fertility NZ Council, as the President of the Oratia Scouts Council & currently sits on the Healing Through Arts Council and the WALSH Trust Board.
Through feedback from this work Robyn was inspired to create several in-school sexuality, body image and cyber safety education programmes for youth. Launched in 2010, these popular programmes are widely delivered by Nest Consulting’s Educators throughout Auckland, Northland and recently launched in Christchurch and Wellington.

Robyn is unbiased in her approach and is passionate about all people having equal access to information & services facilitating empowerment and informed choices.
