I’ve lived in this area for nearly twenty years. I chose to bring up my family up here because it is safe, friendly and beautiful.
I began my working life as a teacher, and I’ve taught in Australia and the US in both wealthy and in disadvantaged schools. I now work as a professional editor.
I joined the Greens after my children were born. Issues like climate change and inequality suddenly felt very personal. I felt the need to take action rather than just hope ‘someone would do something’.
Like many people, I admired Bob Brown and the Greens because they talked about the things really mattered: a sustainable environment, an economy based on clean energy, and a fair deal for people on the margins and for refugees.
I’ve always felt a strong sense of wanting to give back—I have had the privilege of a good education and good health care. I wanted to make sure everyone gets access to the services they need. I am also really aware of the legacy I will leave my children. I think that’s something that drives a lot of people.
I am passionately committed to the issues that will shape our future here in Berowra, like public funding of our schools, TAFE colleges, public hospitals and aged care facilities.
Our policies are principled, affordable and essential.
Join with me in in helping create a fairer, greener and more united Australia—one we can be proud to leave our children and grandchildren. Vote 1 Greens.
