Fay Selby-Law


Fay Selby Law has extensive experience working with District Health Boards, Māori health providers, and within the public health service.

She first started working in health as a neonatal nurse, focusing on supporting whānau and pepi. She felt that it was a very special experience getting to work for her own iwi, "Te Rūnanga o Raukawa in Tamariki Ora, Whānau Ora, and to support young Māma Māori."

Throughout her career in health, she has also focused on uplifting the smokefree sector in Manawatu by supporting whānau, particularly wahine and māmā, in becoming smokefree.

She uses her experience to provide, facilitate, and train health professionals in smoking cessation for the Public Health Service and health promotion for the MidCentral Community Paediatric Service.

Currently, she works as the General Manager of the National SUDI Prevention Coordination Service at Hāpai Te Hauora, an organisation that aims to increase opportunities for communities to enjoy good health and have healthy environments. This role has woven together her life's work experiences and experience of work alongside high-achieving Māori and Pasifika.
