About Ellen


I love Melbourne and our shared commitment to diversity and fairness. As a Kensington local I want to keep Melbourne liveable.

Growing up in country Victoria, it was impossible not to form a strong bond with our environment.

I trained as a scientist, and have worked hard for social justice all my adult life.

I know how important it is to take action on climate change. Before becoming an MP, I was the CEO of a national climate change non-profit organisation.

I have also worked in the Department of Premier and Cabinet, developing the former state Labor government’s climate plan. I saw Labor’s failure to implement the policies we urgently need to tackle climate change first hand.

This set me on a path to becoming the first lower-house Greens MP in Victoria.

Now I'm fighting for a clean economy and a more caring society in the Victorian Parliament. With Melbourne's Federal Representative Adam Bandt and our local Greens Councillors, Melbourne is leading the country in standing up for the environment, a liveable city and a fair society.

Supporters like you are the reason we have such strong representation, and play a crucial role in helping us create change. Please keep in touch as we work together for a cleaner, fairer Melbourne.

It is an honour to serve the people of Melbourne.
