Our Team

Janette Searle
Managing Trustee
Janette has a wide and varied career working in the creative, health, and not for profit sectors. Her passion is to work with a team to make great ideas a reality. Turns out TMH was a great idea and the team she\’s working with is really awesome.
Carol Searle
Trustee – Chairperson
Carol is a founding Trustee of TMH. She met Janette at national women\’s hospital in 1971 and while the pair have a strong bond it is Carols knowledge and passion for the health and disability sector that make her the perfect Chair for the TMH board.
Linda Gray
Trustee – Financial Manager
Linda is one of the founding trustees and provides the sense (and cents) and reason to our work. She is an award winning accountant and partner in her firm so we know TMH is in very good hands with Linda on the board.
John Gale
John was invited to join the TMH family in 2015 as a trustee. He has a wealth of knowledge in health related IT and a huge amount of passion and drive for the work TMH does. He\’s been incredibly active in our South Island operations.
Haylee Bright
Team Administrator
Haylee joined the TMH family in 2014 to help sort and organise us, and we can\’t tell you how much we appreciate that!
Rob Fisher
IT Manager
Rob joined the TMH family in 2014 to work with us over a weekend on our IT challenges and has never left! We think it\’s because he could see we were clearly technically challenged and realised how much help we really needed (or it could be because we shout really good coffee too).
Rich Field
Lead Developer
Rich joined the TMH family in 2015 when we drew him in with promises of home baking and chocolate to help us design and develop our Web Application. Now he\’s leading that development so that we can, like big brother, track everything we send.
