Born and raised in rural Western Australia, I moved to Perth to study at UWA in 2005. At UWA I was quickly elected as a First Year Representative of the UWA Law Students' Blackstone Society, with a membership base of approximately 500 members. I was subsequently elected and represented and led my peers in 3 other different committee positions from 2007 to 2009, including as Sports Representative, Social Vice President and member of the executive committee.
Since completing bachelor’s degrees in both Law and Arts (Communication Studies) and commencing practice as a Barrister and Solicitor, I have held the following further leadership positions:
- Rostrum Club No. 5 (public speaking) Committee Member and General Member: 2011-2014.
- Red Frogs Volunteer, Leader and Universities Presenter: 2014-2016.
- Christian City Church Crawley Young Adults Leader: 2015-2016.
- Business Network International (South Perth) Education Coordinator: 2015-2016.
- Director of Subiaco law firm Douglas Cheveralls Lawyers: 2017-present.
In running as an Australian Conservatives candidate for the Senate, it is my strong desire to be a member of a tough and forthright conservative team that acts to halt the "progressive" (left-wing) agenda in Parliament. If I am elected to the Senate, I will passionately voice the concerns of conservatives, which have too often of late been dismissed as "old-fashioned". I believe strongly that we need to reduce inefficient government spending, reduce taxes, implement stricter requirements for immigration, support our military and police, amalgamate the SBS and ABC, support traditional families, promote traditional family values, challenge any law that puts a burden on Australian taxpayers in the name of “climate change” and stand up for free speech against the intolerant, and increasingly militant, left.
I know there is a better way, and I am looking forward to powerfully advocating to let all Western Australians and Australians know that the Australian Conservatives party is that better way.
