Katherine loves working with our Victorian Leadership Councils who are leading the charge to protect communities from gambling harm at the local government level. As the area of government closest to the community, councils see first-hand the damage done by pokies and the gambling industry. Katherine is passionate about supporting our Leadership Councils to develop sector-leading local gambling policy backed by evidence on avoiding harm and raising community awareness and engagement on gambling issues. She also loves seeing the growing power of local councils when they come together to advocate on behalf of our communities for sensible reforms at the state and national level to reduce harm from gambling. Katherine has previous professional experience in campaigns, and as a solicitor.
