Following my time as East Ward Councillor and Mayor of Fremantle, I spent 20 years in business development and capital raising as co-owner of two businesses. I have also held positions as the inaugural Chair of the Fremantle Prison Trust, Chair of the Rottnest Island Authority and Deputy Chair of the Fremantle Press, where I work part-time in administration. I live in East Ward and am a passionate member of the Booyeembara Park Committee. With skills in financial governance, local government and community engagement, I now have the time for, and am committed to, working for our community.
As a constructive and proactive member of our Council, my focus will be on sound financial management and best use of ratepayers’ funds, progressive planning, in collaboration with our community, to optimise Fremantle’s future, effective Council services including recycling and waste management, verge mowing, maintenance of parks, and community liaison and support.
