Anna is proud to have been raised in a traditional working class family of four with, her twin brother Sean.
As a mother of two kids, Anna knows the importance of hard work and job security. While raising a family Anna worked many jobs doing what she needed to make ends meet.
Anna was a union organiser for 12 years in the airline sector, transport, health, cash carrying industry and local government to achieve decent wages and conditions for workers. As a union organiser during the Ansett Airlines dispute, Anna worked hard to secure entitlements owed to Ansett workers.
Anna knows first hand how important the viability of industry is in the Illawarra region and she has fought hard to improve service delivery in both Public and Private industries such as health care, education and vocation and community transport.
It was during the Your Rights At Work campaign that Anna realised the impact that Government decision can have on protecting workers entitlements, jobs and social fabric for the community. This motivates Anna to work hard for both the people of her electorate and the people of NSW.
Anna’s hobbies include enjoying the local foreshore and beaches and cooking and she looks forward to working with John Robertson and her Labor colleagues, for the people of Shellharbour.
