These include ensuring Brisbane is a leading city in waste management and resource recovery, graffiti management and asset maintenance, including road resurfacing.

As a member of many local community groups, Vicki loves working and spending time with those who share her enthusiasm and pride for Brisbane’s inner north.

Some of the groups Vicki s proud to be associated with include:

  • New Farm and Districts Historical Society
