The wording on this page has been provided by the Elected Member.
I am a local Aubin Grove resident who chose to live in this wonderful suburb to be closer to my family in Wandi.
Having devoted much of my personal time over the past few years by resolving issues in our suburbs, helping organise events and meeting with state and federal politicians to put the spotlight on Cockburn that it deserves. Unaffiliated with any political group, I bring an independent approach to working with people of all backgrounds to promote our community’s wellbeing and safety.
I am the Founder of Cockburn Chat, member of the Aubin Grove Community Association, an NBN Spokesperson for the community, Neighbourhood Watch volunteer and organiser of the successful ‘Widen the Kwinana Freeway’ petition.
