Niva has worked in radio for over 30 years becoming a familiar voice and well known name.
From overweight, heavy drinking, junk-food fan to motivated, health-conscious marathon runner. Niva was inspired after she saw other Pasifika women struggling with health issues too bin junk food and take up running in a bid to avoid being another statistic!!
Niva has completed 5 marathons, Marlborough, two in New York, Queenstown and Paris!!
The award winning journalist has also just released her first book Leading from Behind.
