To clarify I want to be part of the change you are asking for. Experienced, travelled and compassionate who will treat people with respect and dignity.
I have been very open and transparent when I say I am self-funded and not standing as part of any group. I will describe my affiliations for your knowledge – Yes, I am a member of a union, the QNMU/ANF as professional indemnity provided in my membership fee is a condition of my registration or right to practice as a Registered Nurse and Midwife. They have been very supportive if injured at work or I have had concerns surrounding client’s safety. I am not getting any funding from the QNMU.
I am a member of Australian College of Midwives, my professional body that advocates on behalf of midwives and improving women’s choices surrounding birth. I am not getting any funding from ACM.
I am a member of Midwives Australia, a reform body to ensure there is another voice at the table advocating for midwives and women. I am not getting any funding from Midwives Australia.
I am a life member of the Deception Bay Neighbourhood Centre, recently attending their AGM and part of their gardening club. I am not getting any funding from DBNHC.
I have been a 30 year plus member of the Australian Labor Party. I am not getting any funding or support from the machinery of the ALP.
I have lived in this area of Division 2 since 1981. Short break in NSW 2016-18
Our children, Robin and Katreena went to Deception Bay North Primary School, then De La Salle and that later evolved into Southern Cross Catholic College at Scarborough. Katreena later elected to go to St Colombans, Caboolture for Grades 10-12.
They later attended North Point TAFE College Bald Hills and Caboolture doing Diploma’s in Sports Education, Recreation and Business.
They later went to QUT. Robin graduating with Bachelor of Nursing. Robin has since done Bachelor of Paramedical Science at Sunshine Coast University. Katreena with a Bachelor of Business, specialising in Human Resources. I am very proud of my children’s achievements.
They did the very hard yards and a longer way to get where they are now. I am not getting any support from these schools/bodies.
Greg and I have friends, who are from varied backgrounds. They may offer physical assistance in my campaign, but I remain self-funded.
I have acquaintances and one who inspired me enough to run for Councillor when I was driving him around the various parts of the MBRC and taking photos. I seek your understanding and support.
