Why I’m running
I want New Zealand to be a growing, wealthy and vibrant country that provides great opportunities – a country of aspiration where every child can pursue big dreams. I believe unleashing New Zealand's potential requires a National-led Government that backs individual effort and achievement, that encourages entrepreneurialism and innovation, that works to strengthen families and communities and that delivers the strong economic foundations on which equality of opportunity is built.
I'm a proud Wellingtonian, a mother of four children aged four to ten years of age, an honours grad from Vic Uni and an MP who works hard for my community and our city. I bring broad experience to Parliament, having previously held a range of senior management roles at dairy co-op Fonterra, served on the boards of Export NZ and the NZ Initiative, worked for small businesses and in prime minister Key's office. I am a strong voice for Wellington who will get things done for you.
