candidate for Spillett
I am a born and bred Territorian with an endless love for the Territory. I was fortunate to grow up in Palmerston and attend local schools right through to the end of year 12.
Upon returning to Darwin after obtaining my Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of International Studies at the University of Adelaide I worked at a top tier national law firm and later specialised in commercial litigation at a home grown firm.
On 25 August 2012 I was elected Member for Drysdale and served in many roles during my term.
Following significant redistribution of the Drysdale Electorate, I was elected in 2016 as the Member for Spillett and hold the position of Deputy Leader of the Opposition and a number of Shadow Ministries. I also serve on the Social and Economic Policy Scrutiny Committees of the Legislative Assembly.
It is an honour to be the patron of the Palmerston Football Club, Palmerston Combined Probus Club, Palmerston Cricket Club and joint patron of Young Professionals Network NT.
I am fiercely passionate about grassroots representation in parliament and spend much of my time immersed in my electorate. I focus on making myself accessible and accountable to Territorians. As a community representative, I have a duty to help grow the Territory for future generations by fiercely protecting our lifestyle and ensuring ongoing economic prosperity.
I have two beautiful children and a supportive husband who keep me centred, and I value spending time with my family and friends when I am not serving my community.
