I have over 25 years' experience in pursuing my passion for regional development and economic diversification in WA with a particular focus on health, education and Aboriginal advancement. In my leadership roles I have aimed for consensus and fully utilising the talents of a team to achieve the vision of the organisation or enterprise. I have experience in local government community development and strategic planning, and as manager for small business and rural enterprises. My involvement with The Nationals WA include first female President as well as first female leader in the Legislative Council. In those roles I worked with Brendon Grylls to develop the Royalties for Regions policy. I held three seats in the Western Australian Parliament â€“ Agricultural Region and Mining and Pastoral in the Legislative Council and Member for Kalgoorlie and Deputy Speaker in the Legislative Assembly. I completed the AICD Company Directors Course in March 2016. Since retiring from Parliament I have continued my interests in regional development as patron of the WA School of Mines Alumni, Deputy Chair of Earbus Foundation, Committee Member of the Federal Government Regional Telecommunications Independent Review and Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors South West Committee.
