Kaye and her husband bought their first home in the Shoalhaven in 1999. Kaye chose the Shoalhaven for the unspoilt beaches, the bushland and the holiday memories from her childhood.

Kaye has been a community campaigner all her life. She has organised grass roots responses to everything from destructive waste products to the destruction of local foreshores. She worked in women’s employment projects for many years, then retrained as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. A long career in private practice, developing a successful small business, followed.

Kaye will campaign for quality, local, family-friendly services, and family-friendly local development.
