Lucy was first elected as the Federal Member for Robertson on the Central Coast of New South Wales in September 2013. Lucy’s family first moved to Point Clare in 1985, and Lucy and her siblings attended the local school at Narara where her father served as School Principal for many years. Lucy’s former employment includes Government Relations Adviser 2011-12; NSW Corporate Affairs and Communications Manager at Telstra (2004–2011), Electorate Officer and Adviser (1999-2003), and School Teacher on the Central Coast. With a passion for politics, Lucy has long been involved with the Liberal Party of Australia and held the Vice-President (NSW Division) (2011–2012), and NSW Young Liberal Movement Vice-President (2001–2002). Lucy was also the NSW Women’s Council President (2011–2012). From The University of Sydney, Lucy graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in English Literature, and maintains a lifelong interest in music and poetry. Lucy is also involved in Surf Life Saving Clubs, Rotary Clubs and has an interest in inspiring youth. Lucy has a passion for the Central Coast – and has pledged to deliver jobs, growth and opportunity for its people: It is the dreams, the aspirations and the ambitions of people living in Robertson that have become my own. My commitment to them is to fight, with every fibre of my being, for a future where more choice and more opportunity abound. I look forward to the day when Coasties no longer have leave for Sydney or Newcastle or anywhere else in the world to find the sort of economic, career, educational or other advancement opportunities they may want, because they will find them here: in Gosford, in Woy Woy, in West Gosford, in Erina and in Somersby.
