Julie truly values learning about and understanding the needs of residents and giving them a voice on the issues that matter to them.

Honoured to fulfil her first term as a councillor, she’s very interested in making Melton a destination for visitors and, among many ideas, would love to advocate for the Weir to be developed one day.

Family violence, homelessness and food security are issues Julie plans to help address in her role.  

Julie lives, works and volunteers in Coburn Ward. She has been married to husband Paul for 35 years and has three daughters and four adorable grandchildren.

Her life experiences include small business, education, retail, hospitality, not-for-profit and faith-based activities. Julie has served on various industry and not-for-profit boards over the past 25 years which have taught her to appreciate diversity and value a difference of opinion.

Julie is currently serving her first term as Deputy Mayor.
