Originally hailing from the chilly east coast of Te Waipounamu, Prea was born and raised in Timaru. Growing up surrounded by theatre from a very young age, Prea quickly grew a passion to follow the performing arts as a career. Taking the leap to the windy Pōneke in 2017, Prea began her studies at Te Herenga Waka, Victoria University of Wellington.
After graduating in 2019, Prea has since been working as a freelance performer, writer, and producer in the Pōneke theatre scene. Starting at Skills Active is an exciting new chapter for Prea as she starts her career supporting trainees across Aotearoa.
