Candidate for Murray-Wellington
Leonie is born and bred in the Mid West and after working for six years as a school teacher in the Pilbara has since spent more than 20 years working in the community services sector in South West of WA.
Her hobbies outside work include gardening, growing fruit and vegetables, recreational fishing, music (she plays piano accordion, keyboard, spoons and is learning ukulele) and travelling.
Leonie has chosen to work and live in the regions all her life and can see how they are deserved of essential government services so people can stay in regional areas they are connected to. Improving aged housing, community and road safety, health services including a medical precinct at Ravenswood and recreation facilities for youth are among her key priorities for the Murray-Wellington electorate.
Leonie lives in Australind and works all over the South West.
