Q: Why do you love working at Starship?
A: I love working with the children and their families. Working at Starship has also allowed me to develop myself as a nurse and challenge me mentally, emotionally and physically.

A: Being flexible, creative and having fun.
Q: What was your favourite game as a child?

We asked William: What is your favourite thing about K?
He said: “K is always there for a chat and has excellent bedside manner and he has amazing hair. I’m a little jealous. He’s a real cool guy.”
