About Christel and the Kensington/ East Norwood Ward

I live in the City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters because I believe that this is the best community to live. Married with a large family, I am now an 'empty nester' with more time to devote to the community I love. 

Our city has a unique cultural and built heritage that helps identify our community and sense of place. Ensuring that we have an open and transparent Council is important to me and I want to see a city where all people are informed and engaged in community life.

We have excellent community facilities such as swimming pools, parks, playgrounds, community centres, libraries and the Norwood Concert Hall which I strongly support. Maintenance of footpaths, street lighting, speedy graffiti removal and preventing cars speeding through local streets is also important to me.

I am a member of resident associations and acknowledge the great work of our service clubs, welfare organisations, environmental groups, sporting associations and dedicated volunteers.

I am currently a PhD candidate at Flinders University and my top of study is creating and sustaining a strong future for volunteering in Australia. I have worked for over 20 years in senior management roles and not-for-profit boards. I currently serve on Council's Business and Economic Development Committee and the Parade Precinct Committees.
