Team Work Delivers Results

I’m a country girl born and bred. I grew up on a cattle property in Guluguba, north of Miles in Western Queensland. My parents worked the land to make a living, provide opportunities for their children and instill in us a love of regional Queensland and its people.

Regional Queensland is my home and where my husband,  Jason and I chose to raise our family. Jason and I first met at the Cattleman’s Bar at the Ekka and were married five years later. I am now the lucky mother to three wonderful girls and we call the town of Kingaroy, in the South Burnett, home.

Early Opportunities

Like many Queenslanders, I started work straight out of high school – working at Fletcher Jones.

I was keen for new opportunities so went back to school at night to improve my grades and get into university to study business.

Back then it was easier to get different jobs and I spent time being a Jillaroo, selling newspaper advertising, working as a cattle property manager and as an office receptionist.

An Active Community Member

I eventually studied law at QUT and became a partner in my own firm. At times, I was the only female lawyer in the entire South Burnett region. I practiced in property and family law, did free legal work for victims of domestic violence and developed a special interest in farm succession planning.

Through my court work and talking to local police, I noticed that we had a real issue with mental health in our region, so I helped establish the South Burnett Suicide Prevention Group.

Team Work Delivers Results

I was raised in a family where you didn’t just sit back, complain and expect others to create opportunities and solve problems. You get out and do something about it. 

I am extremely pleased that Tim Mander will be my Deputy. As the new leadership team, we are under no illusions of the work we must do to rebuild faith with Queenslanders.

I can assure Queenslanders that I take a no-frills attitude to politics and with me, what you see is what you get.
