Rowanne brings professional and life experience to her role as Councillor.

With her husband, she owned and operated a small business on Redlands Coast for 13 years. Rowanne has previously worked as a Finance Officer within Queensland Health. She has also provided customer service to the Redlands Coast community through roles in the hospitality and retail sectors. Rowanne's personal experience in business is the driving force behind her support for local business and jobs.

Having a passion to build and strengthen community connections, Rowanne has sponsored and supported many fundraisers, events, sporting and community groups across the Redlands Coast. That same passion for community inspired Rowanne to become a volunteer for Redfest Strawberry Festival, the Treasurer and Board member for Exousia Australia and an Advocate for Compassion Australia.

Rowanne is committed to expanding her leadership capabilities and personal growth, having completed the Women Leading in Local Government program and participated in Leadership Development with CPEM Consulting Group. She is currently undertaking horticultural studies to increase her knowledge in landscape management.

With three children in local schools, Rowanne is dedicated to ensuring Redlands Coast is a place for families and young people to live, work and play and encourages all residents to actively participate in achieving the best outcomes for the city.
