I grew up on a dairy farm, worked by my dad, while my mum was a teacher. I have 3 brothers, and we all chipped in with the farmwork – I learned quickly you sometimes have to get your hands dirty to get the job done.
I married a born and raised local from the Boonah area, and we now have 3 sons.
We are very lucky to live in the Scenic Rim – fertile farms, beautiful landscapes and most of all, extraordinary, hardworking people building opportunities for their families.
Working Hard for Our Community
Regardless of who is in government, I get out and about and represent every resident and take up the fight for local issues.
Our region is large, diverse, and growing fast. Whether its our highways needing upgrades, more police in our towns, better services at our local hospitals or more space for our kids’ schools, I am working every day to make sure the government knows what our community needs.
Through hard work and with the community behind me, the LNP Government re-opened maternity and other services at Beaudesert Hospital, maintained fair laws for farmers in managing their land and invested over $50 million in the Mt Lindesay Highway between Beaudesert and Jimboomba.
We delivered schoolzone flashing lights at more than a dozen local schools, 24/7 policing to Beaudesert, and helped remove the flying foxes from Boonah that posed a threat to residents’ wellbeing.
Since I was elected, community clubs and organisations have received over $13 million in grant funding.
The best part of my job is when, working together, we can get a local problem fixed – big or small.
Having grown up in Marburg and attended school in Ipswich, it is exciting to be seeking election in the Scenic Rim Electorate to represent areas so close to my hometown – areas like Willowbank, Purga, Peak Crossing, Harrisville, Mt Walker, Grandchester and others.
I have the ‘runs of the board’ in delivering for our communities, and I can’t wait to hit the ground running and to keep working for the Scenic Rim electorate.
