About me

I am very excited to be representing the diverse area of Division 1. We are a beach to bush Division with complex needs. Our coastal beaches and rural primary producers are some of the best in the country. 

The communities within the Division are the heart and soul of the Fraser Coast.

I have a 23-year background in small business and a strong, generational local connection. I have raised my family, and I am looking to give back to the community that has been so generous to me.

My involvement with several service organisations and community events has only strengthened my passion for the region.

With the predicted growth and development of the entire Fraser Coast, it will be imperative to have strong leadership and direction.

I look forward to delivering the best for our community and leading our region to a prosperous future incorporating livable, connected, and sustainable ideals.
