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.
As your voice in federal parliament and Nationals Senator for Victoria, I want to hear what matters most to you and your community. Help me to help you by filling out the ‘Have Your Say’ survey
Regional Australians know about resilience and compassion in adversity. To our families living in the bush: we have your back. We have faced seemingly insurmountable challenges in our past as a nation and, when we come together, we can achieve great things.
