Raised in the small town of Research, on Melbourne's north-east rural fringe, I attended local public schools, before studying at RMIT and Southern Cross University.
After finally escaping from Melbourne at 26, I've spent time in Seymour, Euroa, Shepparton and now live in Mooroopna.
I have worked in a range of industries including retail, travel, telecommunications, finance, emergency services & currently work in water treatment. I also run my own business, connected to the arts, recycling and food delivery sectors.
I have also studied widely, having completed courses in Fine Arts, Indigenous Affairs, Customer Contact, Emergency Response, Mental Health First Aid, Social Media Marketing and Journalism.
During the Covid pandemic, I've also begun a number of self-paced courses in Business, Marketing and Communications, Graphic Design, Sustainable Tourism and am completing an Undergraduate Certificate in Science.
I ran for the federal seat of Murray in 2016 and the corresponding seat of Nicholls in 2019. I've also been involved with several irrigation policy lobby groups and have campaigned against Shepparton's new Super School.
I have always had a keen interest in people and the way government policy affects our communities - ever since pre-school. My aim has always been to learn and experience everything possible and to use that information to assist others.
