I grew up on a farm and maintain a love of the land and animals. I live with my husband and two children on a small acreage at Richmond.

I’m passionate about ensuring there is equality of opportunity for all Tasmanians regardless of where they live, their background or circumstances. I am passionate about ensuring regional communities are well represented and supported and I’m committed to growing Tasmania’s reputation as a great place to work, to visit and to live.

I was elected unopposed as the Leader of the Parliamentary Labor Party in March 2017 and continue to lead the Parliamentary Labor Party, while also serving as the Shadow Minister for Climate Change, Tourism, Hospitality and Events, and Infrastructure.
I was first elected to the Tasmanian Parliament in 2010 for the seat of Lyons and, in the previous government, served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier and was later appointed Minister for Human Services.

I graduated from the University of Tasmania in 2004 with a combined Commerce and Arts degree with majors in international business management and marketing, journalism and political science. In recent years I became a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
