Melinda was the first North Burnett Member to be appointed as a director on the board of Red Earth. Her vision for Red Earth is to enable and strengthen communities within the Burnett Region and believes that this foundation is key to establishing strong partnerships across the Burnett that will create change for the betterment of both of our regions.

With over 25 years experience within the Tourism, Economic & Community Development sectors combined Melinda is skilled in Nonprofit Organisations, Business and Strategic Planning, Local Government, Youth and Community Development, grant applications, event management and Hospitality Industry practices.

Melinda has a strong passion and commitment to Community and the potential of all individuals. She holds executive positions on a local Tourism and Chamber of Commerce group, Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation and is a Local Government Councillor.
