I have lived in the Wollondilly Shire for over 30 years.  I was elected as a Councillor in 1995 and have served previously as Mayor for 3 terms. Currently I own a small second hand and treasure shop in Picton and previously I worked for Lifeline and Vinnies as a Retail Manager. Prior to that I owned Bargo Newsagency and Thirlmere Video Shop.

My passion for Wollondilly continues with Rural Living, Heritage , Agriculture, Environment, Culture, Arts, Community Services and Tourism being my main focus. I am currently a Director for Local Government NSW, Patron of Wollondilly Arts Group and Picton Show Society and I was a founding member of Friends of Thirlmere  Lakes.

My hobbies include tennis, golf, canoeing and watching the Western Sydney Wanderers. Last year I had the honour of being awarded a Service Award to Local Government and the Emeritus Mayor Award.


I serve or have served on the following committees:

  • Mining Councils
  • Georges River
  • Aboriginal
  • Environment
  • Waste
  • Australia Day Committee.
