Liv Pic.jpeg
Olivia Hall // Executive Director

Olivia (she/her) has a masters degree in gender from The London School of Economics, and returned to Tāmaki Makaurau in 2022, after living in New York and London. Her academic research has looked at women's experiences of pain during sex and seeking medical support for that, and at how fat women navigate sex and sexuality. Liv joined STIEF in 2023 and also teaches healthy relationships and consent focused workshops in schools. She cares deeply about providing diverse, accessible information about sex and relationships. Alongside this mahi, Liv is a spoken word poet and theatre maker who has toured multiple shows around Aotearoa.

Katie McCullough // Clinical Lead

Katie is a nurse practitioner, with a special interest in Sexual and Reproductive Health. She has been nursing since 2010 and has a background in Emergency medicine, Sexual Health, Youth Health, Sexual Assault care, Primary Health and Gynaecology. She is committed to the ongoing pursuit of excellence in the provision of Sexual and Reproductive Health in Aotearoa New Zealand. She serves on multiple boards relating to sexual and reproductive health care and is engaged in post graduate studies (much to the chagrin of her long suffering partner who isn't sure she will ever stop). She currently lives in Auckland with her partner and son.

Emelia Legget // Administrator and Digital Communications Assistant

Emelia (she/her) is a final-year medical student, currently studying in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. She grew up in Auckland but her whānau whakapapa to the deep south - right down the very bottom of Aotearoa! Emelia has completed research in post-natal contraceptive counselling in Auckland maternity hospitals, with the wider lens of the research looking towards the equitable provision of care. That is why the role at STIEF was an exciting opportunity - to work with rangatahi to promote an open kōrero about sex and sexual health. During the weekends, Emelia can be found reliably at the Saturday morning markets if she isn’t on a roadie exploring the beautiful Te Wai Pounamu.

She finished her 5th year of medical school in 2023 and is currently pursuing a BMedSc(Hons) with Professor Suetonia Green as her supervisor. Jackie became involved with ‘Just the Facts’ due to her passion for equity-based healthcare and science communication. She is also involved with ‘Project Kainga’, aimed at building climate change resilience in the wider Ōpōtiki region, and is the Treasurer for the New Zealand Medical Students Association (NZMSA). On the weekends you can find Jackie (slowly) running along the Avon or reading a book in any patch of sunshine she can find.
