My time in Parliament

I was elected to the seat of Gembrook in 2010. I served as the Parliamentary Secretary for Environment in the Napthine Government.

I am currently serving on the front bench as Shadow Minster for Police, Emergency Services, Community Safety, Victim Support and Corrections. My priority remains and always will remain to support the communities who elected me.

My previous life

My career has taken me on a journey of which I have learned so much from. My time as a Police Officer was a career highlight. However, time working with young people, as a prison officer, in retail and running a small business gave me a great background to understanding and representing my community.

I attended Harkaway Primary School and Berwick College and I was not what teachers would call studious. I left school at age 15 and started working full time at McDonalds before a job offer at Panther’s Mensland with local icon Harry Hutchinson.
