Welcome to my page. You have come onto this page to find a bit about me so when the 28th of March comes you can make an informed vote. I am seeking your vote to change the way Council business has been done, a real change and just not words but through the efforts of your local Councillor standing up for ensuring the amenities of Division 2 are considered.
I will respect and value all views, I will acknowledge the diversity of people within our community and I will restore confidence and dignity to those dealing with Council.
Vision is –
To restore truth and integrity to Council business.
To enhancing community values and interests so we can enjoy our amenities and our children can grow up safely
Ensure sustainable and resilient communities are supported by local government activities that has the people at their focus, all ages and all talents.
To ensure development is balanced with recognition and real concern for our environment, waterways and wildlife.
Protect airport boundaries from residential encroachment to ensure the local airport can develop specific aeronautical industries and support the development of secondary industries around it.
Introducing green waste collections and restoring twice yearly kerbside collections, introduce recycling workshops on how communities can reduce waste and recycle their waste. Introduce and support the ‘community garden’ concept to communities.
Healthy activities – encourage affordable educational and physical activities for all levels within their communities.
Moreton Bay strategic development plan needs to be revisited and re-defined in consultation with residents. Residents who purchased their homes based on actual amenities like a golf course or green space should have local government support, developers should not have the capacity to change their minds or sell off or wriggle out of their responsibilities.
By being a strong leader with passion, ethics and unbounded vision to support the community. I will be attending community activities – simply making an apology is not good enough for Div. 2 anymore!
A retired Councillor said to me ‘Council doesn’t have a heart anymore, they don’t care’! I want to restore the HEART to Council business – common sense, knowing, supporting locals in the homes or in their small businesses.

About me – I am a mother and partner who has lived in this area since 1981. I had 4 years working in NSW returning because of the drought affecting my partners work. I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife working in Brisbane.
Our adult children- Robin and Katreena are established in their careers and growing their families with their partners Jessica and Sean.
My activism within the community started when I had to find child-care in the early 80’s- there was none for shift workers especially tough living in a caravan. Caboolture Family Day Care was supported by the community. Child-care is fundamental for people needing to work.
Schooling was at Deception Bay, Bay North, De La Salle and Southern Cross College at Scarborough.
Then as the children grew, we supported them in their activities- Judo Kamiza Judo Club and cricket club at Deception Bay, Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club from Nippers through to young adults doing patrols, PCYC and Peninsula Power Soccer Club- Sunshine Coast school boy representative. Then dance, acrobatics and being part of the Redcliffe City Dancers. Our children participated at local, state and national levels. We took roles of being scorers, monitors and fund raisers as many parents do today.
Our children benefited from Caboolture, Redcliffe, Pine Rivers Councils ability to support and maintain facilities. They were able to participate on top grade fields and dojo. I want to make sure the now amalgamated Moreton Bay Regional Council continue to support families living within this area. Parks should be accessible for all and not just for a few.
