I have been involved with Healthy Cities Onkaparinga for a number of years and was the official City of Onkaparinga liaison for many of these years. My interest is in preventative health and advocating for policy choice that supports and influences a healthy lifestyle.
In the years I have been part of Healthy Cities the committee has produced and commenced projects that have had a collaborative approach and has involved other members of the community. This has helped it grow in both influence and productivity.
As well as being a part of this committee I am on the board for local community centres and I am Area Coordinator for my local Neighbourhood Watch. I have lived in the area for a number of years and though I have seen problems I have also seen many positives one being the community spirit that I see in so many residents.
