The military taught me about integrity, honesty, hard work and the importance of working in a team. But more importantly to me, having someone in my life that has shown me that assisting others for PTSD, Mental Health and other wellbeing issues shows empathy and compassion. This provides me the right ability to fight for what’s right when other people cannot do it for themselves.


Having had multiple successful careers, I feel it is time for me to use my experience and skills and help Campaspe Shire move forward into the future and that is why I’m running for Campaspe Shire Council. Among my primary goals is to advocate for the individual, not just the loudest groups.
