Before entering Parliament, Nina was a member of the Glen Eira City Council. She had previously worked for the Community and Public Sector Union, completed articles at a corporate law firm, and volunteered at the Women’s Legal Service. Her first jobs were as a schoolteacher and in long term disease management in the pharmaceutical industry.
As a councillor, Nina collaborated with local community on reforms such as low carbon transport and sustainability measures. She wanted the opportunity to collaborate further with her community. This is what prompted her to run for Parliament.
The priorities Nina has for her community are reducing waste and encouraging lower cost, low carbon energy provision, as well as driving educational opportunities, the rollout of major mental health care reforms, enhancing quality open space, access to multi-modal transport options, and providing the dignity of safe shelter for Victorians in need.
Nina’s vision for Victoria’s future is that it is an accessible, compassionate and educated state. She wants us to have advanced multi-modal options, safe and climate-sensitive shelter for all, and equitable access to educational pathways.
The areas of public policy that she is most passionate about are environment, energy, climate change, education, health, housing, creative arts and multiculturalism.
