I’ve worked as an educator in Victoria, remote Northern Territory communities, and NSW and have been an NT Education Union delegate.

My whole adult life, I’ve been part of environment campaigns across the country on issues such as uranium, logging, coal and gas and environment laws.

I have been a spokesperson for my local resident’s group on coal dust, ammonium nitrate and planning issues, and have been a board member of the Worimi Conservation Lands for five years.

I’m passionate about working with my community to make Newcastle an inclusive, accessible, clean and green city that supports our local economy and protects our fabulous beaches and green spaces. I want to reduce our city’s emissions through electrification and rooftop solar, increasing our urban forest and completing a separated cycleways network in Newcastle.

As a Ward 2 councillor, I’m excited about the possibilities ahead for Newcastle, with the development of circular economics, green hydrogen, offshore wind and green manufacturing. I look forward to working with you on your local issues, no matter how great or small.
