Senator for Victoria


My Vision

My family has lived and worked in regional Victoria for generations. Growing up with the traditional rural influences of small business, sport and agriculture, I believe that strong regional economies and secure regional communities are critical to the future prosperity of our great nation.

My experiences as a parent, secondary school teacher and university lecturer have fuelled my passion for education and our youth. I am committed to improving opportunities for young Australians, no matter where they live.
