Ali is passionate about her local community, local businesses and ensuring that the people of Dickson emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic in a better place.
Ali has lived on the Northside for thirteen years and is a mum of two teenage boys. She understands the financial pressures of raising a family and that is why she has continuously campaigned for policies that support good secure jobs and cheaper childcare for all families.
Ali is an amputee and disability advocate, and will continue to fight against the Morrison government’s proposed changes to the NDIS and push loudly for the rights of disabled people.
Ali has worked in the private, public and charity sectors as a journalist and communications manager. She knows the struggle of trying to get back to work following an injury and illness. Ali spent many years in and out of hospital after a traumatic accident in 2011 and will always stand up for our public hospital system and our front line workers.
Ali understands many of the issues impacting her community because she has lived them and is on the ground talking and listening to locals at every opportunity.
