Belinda grew up in Tailem Bend and now lives in Murray Bridge, where she and her partner settled as young adults to raise their four children. Belinda has spent the past decade working at Big W Murray Bridge, where she is both ‘store mum’ to all her fellow staff and a passionate delegate for her union.
Belinda is passionate about industrial law and workplace issues, and is also a great advocate for the crucial importance of a strong health system. After her partner was seriously injured in a motorbike accident, the quality of care he received enabled him to return to normal life. Belinda knows we must protect Medicare to preserve the right of every Australian to access high quality healthcare services. The list of Belinda’s passions is long, and she is highly driven to make life better for all Australians, particularly across the regions.
