Shadow Minister for Small Business

In March 2016, I was appointed to the position of Shadow Minister for Small Business and I served in this capacity until July, 2019.

As someone who owned and operated a business for nearly 20 years, I recognise that small businesses are the engine room of the NSW economy.


In this role I advocate on behalf of small business owners across the State to ensure that the Government provides the best circumstances for small business to grow and thrive.
