Biography

Fiona Martin is your Liberal Member for Reid.

Fiona is a mum, psychologist and small businesswoman, who has spent her life working to better the lives of people, supporting some of the most vulnerable children in our community. Fiona’s work has helped to treat a wide range of learning, developmental and behavioural difficulties that children experience.

Like many people who live in Reid, Fiona attended school locally, firstly at Santa Sabina College and then Rosebank College, before graduating from the University of Sydney and undertaking specialised training at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.

Fiona’s work has improved the social functioning of young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and she has also developed a resilience program for children.

Fiona founded and runs the Sydney Psychology Centre, and is a consultant for a wide variety of organisations including Only About Children and SafeWork NSW and is a special adviser for Little Blue Dinosaur. She has also been recently appointed as an Ambassador Expert by Life Education.

By running a small business in its thirteenth year of operation, Fiona has seen first-hand the difference that a strong economy makes to the lives of everyone in our community.

Fiona is passionate about backing local small businesses to create more jobs, building the infrastructure our community needs and ensuring taxes stay low, so people can get ahead.

Fiona knows a strong economy doesn’t happen by accident and the risk to our community of Labor’s higher taxes on workers, retirees, and small businesses is significant. That’s why Fiona will work to help secure our economy and future.

Around 5 million Australians will start receiving our second $750 support payment from today, including pensioners. And millions of Australians are set to benefit again from the important tax cuts we legislated last year, getting up to $1,080 back in their tax returns. It’s all part of our record financial support to help get Australians through these difficult times. Over the weekend, I also agreed to providing more Australian Defence Force support to the Victorian Government to help deal with the COVID outbreak in Melbourne. We’ll continue to provide whatever support is needed to make sure we all get through this together.
