I have lived in Lytton for over thirty years with my husband and our two children.
While raising my family, I was a committed volunteer, actively involved in Nursing Mothers, the Wynnum BUGS Rugby Club, Bulimba Hockey and various local schools and kindergartens.
At the same time, I built a career in Adult Education in both the corporate and community sector and also ran a small business in the heart of my electorate.
Through my strong community focus and previous experience, I recognise the interconnectedness of social and political life. I am a keen supporter of local groups as they work hard to bring people together in the community.
I am currently the patron of the Wynnum Manly Historical Association, the Wynnum Manly Yacht Club, the Bayside Woodturners and Woodcrafters Club, the Wynnum Choral Society and the Bayside Eastern District Orchid Society.
I am deeply passionate about advocating for the Bayside. Improving health services, protecting the environment and establishing support for victims of domestic violence are issues close to my heart.
My passion for shaping policy that promotes access and equity is further demonstrated through my appointment to the Health and Environment Committee.
My commitment and capacity is recognised by my Government, evidenced by my current appointment as the Senior Government Whip.
I am passionate about equality of opportunity for all and see the policy-making process of as a vehicle for the progressive advancement of our nation.
I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land & sea on which I walk, work and live. I pay my respects to Elders, past, present and future.
