Meet Ingrid

Before entering Parliament, Ingrid fought for low paid workers across the private and public sectors. She was Secretary for the Victorian Branch of the Australian Services Union between 2004 and 2018.  

Ingrid's family has lived in Melbourne's west for more than 20 years. She wants to ensure it remains a great place to live, work and raise a family. This is what prompted her to run for Parliament.

The priorities Ingrid has for her community are to ensure all families have access to world-class public hospitals, schools, early learning facilities, transport infrastructure, and green open spaces. She is also deeply committed to supporting the growth of safe and secure local jobs in Melbourne’s growing western suburbs, and ensuring that vulnerable community members have the support they need. 

Ingrid's vision for Victoria’s future is that it is known as the best place in the world. She believes that we should provide every child with the knowledge and skills that will see them thrive throughout their lives. And she is committed to the conservation and protection of Victoria's precious natural environment for generations to come.
