Occupation or employment description
|Lawyer and management consultant specialising in corporate governance. I initially practiced in corporate litigation and then spent 10 years at ASIC where I held national management roles. In early 2011, I set up my own business consulting in corporate governance, leadership and gender diversity.|
|Previous community involvement||At University, I volunteered in a number of community legal services. More recently, I have served on committees with Victorian Women Lawyers, Environment Victoria and Clarendon Childcare Centre. Currently I am in my second year on the School Council at Middle Park Primary School.|
|What inspired you
to be a councillor?
|As a volunteer, parent and resident, I recognise the need to build our community. We need more childcare, aged care, affordable housing and new schools. I want to make sure that these services are provided. Most of all, I want to ensure that Council listens and responds to residents and local business owners.|
|What is your favourite part of
your ward and why?
|The people; a remarkably diverse, friendly and open community thrives in Albert Park. The beach, lake, beautiful tree-lined heritage streets, the village shopping strips with great restaurants and shops come a close second.|
|What are your interests outside council or politics?||I enjoy running and completed my first marathon in October. I also enjoy reading, cooking and eating great food. And most of all the company of my family and friends.|
