What is your plan vision for Council?

My aspiration is for Stonnington to remain one of the most desirable places to live, work and play.

We have already have a great city with our many events, beautiful parks, shops and restaurants to complement our lifestyle and housing choices – we need to protect what is great about Stonnington.

I am committed to working with the community to improve Stonnington and South Ward and will voice residents' and traders' views to achieve common sense decisions for our City.

I come to Council with enthusiasm and commitment and am proud to represent the community of the city that is my home.

What do you love about Stonnington?

I love shopping in Stonnington, especially at the Prahran Market. We are so lucky to have such fabulous fresh food choices on our doorstep. I also worked at the market for six years while completing my university degree so it has a special place in my heart.
