I am standing as a candidate for Warragul Ward in the Baw Baw Shire election.

With a growing community in Baw Baw Shire, I believe we need to focus on better delivery of the basics. Properly maintained roads, responsible development of community infrastructure and quality services are my top priorities. We need a Council that embraces change, is responsive and puts the immediate needs of ratepayers first.

Born in Warragul, I returned to Gippsland 15 years ago. In 2010 our family moved into town to give our children access to great schools, sports facilities, transport, parks and good health services.


My family has a long tradition of community involvement in the Warragul district. As a parent, and small business owner, and with a background in education and land management, I am very aware of the diverse needs of our community.

I have been an executive member of kindergarten, netball club and school committees, as well as a long-standing member of the Tanjil Valley Landcare Group. I am a graduate of the Gippsland Community Leadership Program.

If elected as an independent Councillor, I will listen, be accountable and work hard towards achieving the best results for our community.
