Biography

Born and raised in Launceston, Wendy and her family continue to enjoy the many benefits of life in Tasmania. Wendy and her husband, John, were recently married in Launceston. She also has two adult children, both serving the Tasmanian community - one as a school teacher, and the other with Tasmania Police.

Wendy is a proud Tasmanian who loves being involved in community activities. She has been a Rotarian for over 10 years, is a Past President and Paul Harris Fellow, and remains a passionate and active member of her Club.

Wendy has had an extensive and successful career in banking, having held a range of senior management positions. She also had the opportunity to support St Giles Society as a General Manager, assisting children and adults with disabilities across Tasmania.

Wendy has worked with former federal Members for Bass, Michael Ferguson and Andrew Nikolic, and played a key role in each of their election campaigns and more recently as an Adviser to The Hon Dan Tehan MP.

Wendy has a keen desire to see all Tasmanians realise their maximum potential through policies that support them to achieve their goals, with a hand up rather than a hand out. Wendy understands that small businesses need to be able to make decisions in their best interests rather than worry about red tape restricting them. Wendy is working to keep our economy strong and vibrant because that is what allows us to deliver the essential services Tasmania needs.

From Wendy

Since becoming Prime Minister I have travelled to drought-affected communities, talking to farmers and engaging with communities. Our farmers and graziers are the best in the world. They are doing it tough, and we are on their side. That's why we passed the Future Drought Fund through the House last night, which will provide $5 billion in permanent funding support for drought resilience projects all around Australia.

Amazing to meet Scarlett and Anna with Katie Allen MP this morning to announce our Government will expand the PBS listing of the medicine Kalydeco for infants, helping children living with Cystic Fibrosis. It will save families up to $300,000 a year, taking it down to as little as $6.50 a script. Improving the lives of children like Scarlett and Anna are the inspiring reason we do our jobs as parliamentarians.

Our farmers are the best in the world despite years of drought and hardship. That’s why today at the Daily Telegraph’s Bush Summit in Dubbo, I announced that our Government is committed to take our agricultural sector to a $100 billion industry by 2030.
