I have lived in the City of Melville all my life, completing all of my study in the Bateman-Kardinya-Murdoch Ward, at Kardinya Primary School, Somerville Baptist College and Murdoch University. My husband and I love living in the City of Melville and enjoying all it has to offer.
In my teenage years, I became involved with the City of Melville through the City's Youth Advisory Council (YAC). It was my participation in this program that lead to my desire to contribute to my community in a meaningful way. Having been first elected to the Melville council at the age of 19, I have experience serving on many external committees at the City of Melville including Neighbourhood Watch, the Local Emergency Management Committee and the Youth Sports Scholarship Panel as well as internally both the Governance and the Finance Committee. I have a Bachelor of Science (in Mathematics and Statistics, and Chemistry) and a Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education. I teach Mathematics at Kennedy Baptist College in Murdoch.
I have a passion for sound planning, having been a member of the Central Joint Development Assessment Panel since my second term on Council. I am also enthusiastic about community engagement and youth issues. Outside of local government, I enjoy reading and watching the Dockers.
