I love my Lismore community and surrounding country, its people and cultural life. I have a particular interest in managing our waste and water sustainably, and work hard to ensure that our farmland and environment are secure from overdevelopment.

I have served on Council since 2016 and during this time have been a champion for financial responsibility, planning reform and protecting our precious environment. I’ve lived in Lismore since 1999 and now live on the North Lismore floodplain, farming and regenerating my land. In my day job, I work for NSW Health. I love Lismore and it’s diverse communities and want our future to be happy, healthy and resilient.

As a small business owner, I want to see sustainable development in our area – planning that enhances prosperity and employment, without detracting from the character and natural beauty we so value. I volunteer in several local organisations and play in a band too.
