Labor Candidate for Ginninderra
Heidi’s journey in community advocacy began in Canberra, where she met her late husband Andrew who lived with cystic fibrosis. Despite knowing their time together would be short, Heidi became a passionate advocate for those with cystic fibrosis, raising $1 million as "Head Santa" in the Santa Speedo Shuffle fundraiser.
At the same time, Heidi's worked to transform the reach and impact of non-profits. As CEO of MIEACT, she tripled mental health education services for Canberra's youth. This led to her recognition at the ACT Young Australian of the Year awards, and the ACT Telstra Business Woman of the Year awards.
Beyond her professional achievements, Heidi contributes to her community as a netball coach, a member of various health committees and panels, and a board member for local organisations. She's deeply committed to the well-being of her community, and has a proven track record of putting progressive ideas into practice.
And that's why Heidi's running as a Labor candidate for Ginninderra.
