Tell us about your background? (Family, career, professional experiences)

I am a former Police Officer, proprietor of a general store and Disability Support Officer. Prior to moving to Ararat in 2014, I represented the Kinglake district on the Yea and Murrindindi Councils for eight terms. I served four terms as Mayor, including from 2009-2011 after the February 2009 fires. I have been involved in numerous community groups, and have continued this involvement since moving to Ararat. I represent Council on the Municipal Association of Victoria’s Human Services Committee and am a Council representative on a number of community committees.
