Keeping Communities Safe
Strong and secure communities create a reliable and robust society. As a mother, it is important to me to make sure that the community is protected and looked after. I am committed to safe, strong and resilient communities which empower individuals and neighbourhoods to create a life that enhances wellbeing. As an Ivanhoe local, I am passionate about making Ivanhoe a safe and thriving community.
Supporting Families and Children
As a wife, mother and community member it is central to me to support families and children in as many practical ways as possible. It is a key focus in everything I do. As a former nurse and a current family lawyer, my life has been devoted to improving the health and lives of children and families. I am dedicated every day in my professional and community life to delivering outcomes that benefit us all.
Empowering Individuals and Small Business
Being a small business owner myself I understand first-hand the challenges and limitations of running a business. Small businesses contribute significantly to the strength of the Victorian economy, and are found in almost every industry and sector. They employ a substantial number of people and it is important to keep small business strong; providing opportunities to improve skills, opening up new markets and minimising red tape to increase growth and offer more job opportunities. Supporting small business and focusing on jobs will always be a priority for me.
Sustainable Growth and Liveability
With unprecedented and accelerating population growth, increasing high-density residential developments, car congestion and overcrowded public transport, protecting the way we live is essential to our mobility and liveability. Sustainable growth that is well planned, measured and considered is vital to ensuring that we remain a city which is functional and supports the community. I am committed to practical and effective measures that protect the way we live.
Keeping our Parklands Green and Clean
Keeping our parklands and reserves clean and green will ensure our city remains liveable for our children, and for future generations. With immense challenges and pressures such as population growth and high-density developments, having generous green spaces is vital for our health and wellbeing. I am committed to working with the community to ensure that we keep our parklands strong and healthy.
