Profile and contact
I have lived in the Norwood, Payneham and St Peters Council area for 15 years and love so much about it - in particular the feeling of cosmopolitan and progressive community that is supported and nurtured by our facilities such as our libraries, open air dining, our swimming pools, tree-lined streets and the many public parks. As your Councillor I am committed to protecting and where necessary, improving, our community facilities and being an advocate for responsible urban development.
During 2019, I have been determined to ensure that the Council is running as effectively and efficiently as possible by consulting with residents, Council staff and other experts, and supporting the making of plans that have clear outcomes, processes and accountabilities, timelines and budgets. My background in State Government and the not-for-profit sector, is proving very useful in understanding how to get things done, ensuring our community continues to be a great place to live, work and raise a family.
While we must manage the nuts and bolts such as footpaths, roads, parking and waste, as one of the youngest Councillors, I feel particular responsibility for ensuring that the Council also has an eye on the longer term future. As a result I continue to be a strong advocate for progressive policies, including declaring a climate emergency in our Council area.
