My Vision for Oodgeroo
A New Energy
I am convinced there are more innovative ways to help the Redlands thrive than “business as usual’. As MP for Oodgeroo, I would offer the community a fresh approach to create a "New Energy" for Oodgeroo. As part of that process I will arrange community forums to seek input into that future vision.
People love living in the Redlands with its special coastal environment. There is a strong community spirit, but the majority of locals say their lifestyle is worse now than five years ago. I believe we can do much better to look after what we value.
Ethical and Indpendent
Your independent voice for the future
I will adopt the ethical and unbaised approach that I have applied throughout my career, and will continue to retain my independence from political parties and vested interests.
A Little Of My Story
Former CEO of a successful scientific and engineering consultancy based in Capalaba
The business that I ran for 22 years provided expert advice throughout Australia and internationally and included involvment in numerous major infrastructure projects. I am regularly asked to provide evidence in the Queensland Planning and Environment Court as a technical specialist. I am experienced in arbitration and mediation.
In 2019 I received a PhD from the Department of Engineering and Built Environment, Griffith University, and have a BSc(Hons), graduate diplomas in the fields of air quality and acoustics as well as a graduate diploma from the Australian Institute of Company Directors. I have been a State finalist for Telstra Business Woman of the Year – Business Owner and Innovation categories.
Family, Sailing and Outrigger Canoeing
Outside of work and the community I enjoy spending my time at home with my husband and three children. If I am not at home I can usually be found on or near the beautiful waters of Moreton Bay as part of the crew on either a yacht or an outrigger canoe.
Regular sightings of dolphins, turtles, dugongs and manta rays reinforce my belief in the importance of Moreton Bay and its' islands to the prosperity of Oodgeroo. We chose to bring up our family in the Redlands becuase of the beauty of the natural environment and proximity to the bay.
